Java 8 Update 40 is such a joy
ORACLE JAVA 8 Update is such a joy. But before you bash me, I am referring to the latest delivery from ORACLE… I am just going to quote someone you all know and let you decide for yourself:
Greg Neagle – Java 8 Update 40 – Everything That Is Wrong With Oracle’s Java In One Post
He is of course referring to the post Rich Trouton made at the JAMF Nation forums that I am just going to put right here: https://jamfnation.jamfsoftware.com/discussion.html?id=13567
If Java were a product used only on non enterprise environments, I wouldn’t care if they add 20 toolbars (although it being part of ORACLE, they don’t need to), but no, JAVA is used across the Enterprise quite a lot and for them to pull these shenanigans on us is part of a bad joke.
First Sophos goes from a .pkg installer to an .app and now JAVA goes into a .app with some ad-ware skank product like Ask.com toolbar.
