    So are you saying that you're disappointed that Microsoft didn't cripple your payroll partner's app by remotely disabling Java, or are you just saying that you wish your payroll partners didn't depend on Java?

    If Apple stopped playing these kind of shenanigans, it would be easier for enterprise to rely on them in a corporate environment. This kind of activity is disappointing for people who want to see more Macs in the workplace. Seeing Apple punishing IT departments that choose Macs as part of their fleet by disabling enterprise-critical apps on those Macs without consulting them first makes it even less likely that an IT department will move away from the Windows monoculture in the office any time soon.


    You miss the point....the problem is enterprise-sucking apps that rely on Java...I'm saying that Java needs to die and's a POS malware vector, regardless of OS used in the enterprise. The Windows monoculture is destined to change anyway...iPads and Macbooks have already infiltrated our environment, which would have been unthinkable 3 yrs ago.
