Yes, seriously. Reread what I said in the post before yours. I'm quite aware of all the Java security advisories, especially considering I program in Java for my day job
. I said that I'm unaware of anyone having a problem with the fact that the Installer was written in Java, until this thread.
I would have imagined you to have reservations about using Java after all these months of Java security issues being in news, not just in internet but also in papers and tv. I am honestly quite amazed this is not the case. People who have Java installed must be record low as of now, thanks to all that news drumming.
As I said, I program in Java for my day job, and nobody is more than mildly concerned. We've disabled Java applets in our browsers, of course, but we are continuing to go full speed ahead on all of our programs, collaborative projects, and research efforts. All of which are written in Java.
And... thread split.
