Java setup sucks...
It's bad enough that the java setup window includes an in-your-face advertisement for OpenOffice.
It's bad enough that old versions of java are not removed automatically, nor is the user prompted to remove old versions.
It's bad enough that Java bundles the Google Desktop and Toolbar with new installs.
Today I saw a computer where the java setup had been stuck at "copying new files" for over 20 minutes. The owner was in a panic because THERE IS NO CANCEL BUTTON.
His choices were:
- Keep waiting
- Force a halt to the install using Task Manager - which is a *bad* thing to do.
- Turn of the power.
What on earth are Sun thinking?
