With Java suffering from an exploitable security flaw, it is time to uninstall Java.

Could this be the death of Java as a consumer technology? Java will live on as a server technology, for running some phone software, and as that annoying thing that makes Blu-ray disks take ages to load, but it could be dead on the desktop.

It must be years since I last needed to use Java on a Mac or a PC.

I suppose this also adds a nail to the coffin of web browser plugins. Using mobile devices and tablets show us that web browsers are quite useable without the security and performance hit of having plugins.
