Commentary by Stephen Downes

For those of us who use Bloackboard Collaborate, this is a problem, as it requires Java. But if you can get by without using Java, you really should. And this time, it's not just me saying it, but real computer experts. Additionally, as one commentator writes, "you may want to consider giving Adobe’s Reader and Flash the old heave-ho too." I didn't even install Flash on my Android (just as well) and would like to remove it entirely from my computer, if I thought I could manage without it. Oh yeah, and iTunes is on the way out too, along with Quicktime.
