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.

Your comment is very frustrating. The reason why I bought my JObs forsaken macbook, was because of the Java and python bindings for coacoa. You could write programs in either of those languages and get a native Mac look and feel. But, Apple ... just ... stopped ... upgrading those. So they really just suck now. They made some great promises about Java being a First class language, and they just let it die a slow death. Apple is a very frustrating company to depend on.

I suggest doing so, only if one has a high tolerance for hypocrisy and insanity. What is promised tomorrow may be forgotten today.

Took me a second.
"Wait, wha- ...oh."
I'll have to remember that one, as I love getting that reaction out of people.
