I did a check on the APPS on my system that need Java and all I found was yawcam.com.
There may be something else that I dont know about.
So I guess I dont need Java..
Or do some webpages need Java.
Have I done the right thing. ?
Why would I need Java..?
Thank you.. ?
Ive got OpenOffice.
So I really do need Java..
Of course Java and Sun.. Now Oracle and Java and OpenOffice.
Java runtime is needed like a flash player.
I'm using eclipse ide it need java.
Some website like online youtube downloader,system requirement checker need it.
You could be surprised how many applications use Java without you knowing it.
This is due to the fact that Java is easy to program in, and cross platform, so a lot of applications make use of it. You may find that if you were to remove it, programs that use java without you knowing it, will stop working.
I have uninstalled Java.
But I can easily put it back in. I have lost a couple of apps like Yawcam
So far so good..
Just an experiment
< This guy plays Minecraft a lot, thus Java is very necessary =D. I also program occasionally in Java.
Java is used a little bit here and there. So, it is always better to keep the Java in your system
What I do is to sometimes block the Java Updater, when I am on a limted bandwidth internet connection, becuse it may decide at odd times to update itself and slow down my browsing speed.
But always keep it and keep it updated to prevent and security loopholes
It seems libreoffice does need java...but ive heard there's a way to remove this necessity...
Some websites need java to run some applications. I always tell me frends to have the lastest version of Java. There are cools java app and games out there, that we can use. Will always update your java to get the most java performance.
