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.

OSX does NOT ship with X11 pre-installed. X11 is installed via a package that you can get off either the developer disk, or internet (

Actually, it's been part of the base system since Leopard.
It was an external package in Tiger and prior, though.

Actually X11 is installed by default now. So yes, it is included. And it wouldn't surprise me at all for them to remove it. Apple sucks that way.
