It seems there's no Java 6 in the new OSX Leopard from Apple.
I mean, it's not like it's been almost 11 months since SUN released Java 6 on Linux, Solaris and Windows. And I bet it's more than an year since Apple started getting code for Java 6 from SUN in order to customize it in due time.
But I guess the iPhone and transparent menu is far too important to actually put some developers work on Java.
It's bad enough that they are supposed to force down on my throat a new OS release for a new JDK version -- I just want Java 6 on Tiger thank you very much. But now, they are delaying even that !
So, I'm thinking that in the future I'll probably go back to Linux and stay there. I thought proprietary Microsoft software is bad; well, I'm starting to believe maybe proprietary Apple software is just as bad (only prettier).
Hence, the first step is to get Linux working and see the hardware support. Because if it's not good enough I might just go for a Thinkpad.
What about that Apple ?
