I never cared for Java, or Silverlight, or any other language that requires plug-ins.
It's turning into a nightmare at our enterprise. Some teams have projects that are only compatible with older versions of Java, and the GPO keeps pushing out new versions of Java to keep up with the security updates, and then it breaks the older projects.
So it's a scramble for the support team to figure out all which versions you can use for which project.
And then on top of that, we can't use Chrome because for some reason it disables Java if it's not the newest version, and even after downloading and installing the latest Java, Chrome still doesn't recognize it. I think it has something to do with 32-bit vs. 64-bit. So basically my app that runs amazing on Chrome, can't be used because I have to link out to these other older projects that still use Java.
Such a PITA.
