Re: Java 7 Update 17 and 6 Update 43

said by Blogger:

Why do we even need the current Java.

Why or what potential is there to rebuild Java, and do we have the ability to do it so its effective, needed, and secure?

Good points... I use it for LibreOffice (however I've read it can now work without it), FrostWire, Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 and Arcsoft Total Media Theatre 6. There are also the online Java speed tests that I find provide a more accurate representation than their flash counterparts. Right now, I still have a small use for it.

Every time I reinstall the latest version of Java I see that message about how "BILLIONS" (maybe it's millions?) of applications and hardware utilize Java. So it might be worth while re-building it in that respect .
Remember that cool hidden "Graffiti Wall" here on BBR? After the name change I became the "owner", so to speak as it became: Dustyn's Wall »[Serious] RIP
