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.

There is an alternative to Java on Mac. It comes with a "write once compile everywhere" mentality. And when it compiles - you actually get an executable not an interpreted bloated/framework/wrapped/always-changing/... well you get the picture :-)

Check out: http://lazarus.freepascal.org/

Just use latest and greatest version from svn for bleeding edge performance/components
