I've only been here one day and it's pretty clear that this is a pretty hostile forum
We can all hope that one day these companies will stop doing things that annoy us, but until pigs fly we'll have to rely on third party utilities like ninite to get around their poor choices.As you realize yourself - its all about money dude. Stop confusing good or bad will with it, corporations don't work on that basis. The regulars of this forum, which includes a large chunk of the moderators, have learned that lesson long ago and can't be bothered by it anymore (I hope, I don't want to speak for others). Java is part of a business policy, it needs to generate revenue in one way or another. This is just one tiny little way of doing it, how unprofessional and idiotic it might be. I don't like it, but I understand it.
