Mac OS X After the news that the new MacBook Airs do not ship with Flash pre-installed (which is news considering Flash has been part of Mac OS X for a very long time), we now have news that Apple is also taking what appears to be the first steps towards removing Apple's own Java runtime from Mac OS X.

I agree whole heartedly with your sentiment.

While the technical user can configure *any* os to their choosing, there is a sad irony that Apple would rather you pay extra for a closed eco-system and beyond that they'd also like to choose how you use applications not found in the app store.

Apple - Have it OUR WAY.

In contrast, my Windows 7 laptop is beyond easy to use, supports a full eco system and doesn't require me to be locked into a single source.

Apple is a company that has mastered the UI and has excellent marketing. They are not your friend.

Thus I prefer to control the software myself.
