exactly, my point is that Apple doesn't want to give a chance to
Google to do that, so the reason they discontinued is probably because
Oracle will pick it up.
> I don't see any incentive for Oracle to pick up OSX Java support except that OSX is increasing in its share of the desktop market. Since Oracle is mostly concerned about the server side not Swing/AWT/SWT/FX, I don't see Oracle saying 'OMG, we better get on this right away!'.
I don't think Oracle can ignore macs in 2010 and still maintain the
"write once, run anywhere" Java claim. I mean, the iPhone is closed
and it's Apple "fault" it doesn't support Java, but if Macs don't
support Java... it will be Oracle fault. Redhat and Microsoft don't
write their JVMs.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
