Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 3
Authored by: fuzzy76 on Oct 22, '10 12:31:41AM

That is because Flash is made by Adobe. The Java runtime for OS X is made by Apple. So there is nowhere to download it from. Sun never did a runtime for Macs.

My guess is that Steve does this to force Oracle to make an OS X port of Java.

When it comes to comiclife and the other crapware, I have had it preinstalled on all my OS X Tiger Macs, long after the Intel transition.

On the PC side, I loathe the stuff that comes prebundled with most computers, and wasn't *that* sad to see it go on the Apple side.

That said though, the things Apple chose to distribute were actually pretty damned good -- all of Omni's applications are extremely clever, useful tools, and Comic Life is a lot of fun to use. (I actually kind of wished that Apple had bought it out & made it part of iLife or even iPhoto, but that obviously never happened.)
