this is good for the end user IMO. I remember sometime over the last year Apple was bit with a security hole by including an older version of Flash in an update. Their Java version also usually lags behind the current releases. By not including both the end user will be able to update them more frequently or not have them installed at all if they don't use it. I can see people that don't have a need for Java at all.

I remember the same issue, but when the problem first started their support didn't know what was going on. After the problem was more well known, we had the same quick service that you stated. That was a big headache for us as I worked at an all-dell school at the time and we had a huge number of affected computers.
