No Java thanks

I just visited Google and Firefox popped up a message, “Install Missing Plugins”.

Oh crap. Are Google using (more) Flash I first think?

Then I go see what plugin it wants… the Java runtime environment !! WHAT? NOOOO!

I also sadly saw this webtoolkit released recently by Google that seems to be a Java + Eclipse monster.

I hate Java. Absolutely loathe it. Recently there has been talk of an amazing license change to warrant its inclusion into Debian.


I thought Java was dying. :(


If you like this, you might like the stateless Web kiosk software I develop. Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
