BeOS & Derivatives "Since my last blog entry I have mostly completed the implementation of the AWT/Java2D port. It is still in need of a lot of testing, but it is stable enough to run a lot of Swing apps out of the box." Pretty cool for Haiku. I wonder what the use is - besides Minecraft - but alas.

AFAIK OpenOffice and LibreOffice primarily use Java for 'binfilter'. Without those proprietary file formats there is no need for Java.

I believe you're right, I've noticed recent releases "recommend" the JRE rather than require it. I'm not sure if it's used for PDF export; that's one of the killer features of the suite.

Well at least you can print to PDF in any case...

On windows there is Bullzip and I'm pretty sure CUPS can print to pdf.
