On your home Windows7 machine it's also trivial to download the Java JRE and plugin and as simple as pie to enable or disable Java.

What you're talking about isn't a problem with Windows7, but rather a problem with your payroll partner.

This discussion is not whether Java is easy to use, install and upgrade, but rather whether it is acceptable to remotely kill your payroll partner without asking whether they need that Java first.

 

I think it is more about making an intelligent strategic decision to deep-six Java, period; and move past the 1990s.
