Leonhard traces the history of Java's stewardship on the Mac and other platforms, and shows how by refusing to take on active responsibility for Java patches, new Apple CEO Tim Cook finally got what former CEO Steve Jobs long wanted: The ownership to go back to Oracle, just as Adobe takes responsibility for Flash and AIR vulnerabilities and Microsoft does for Office flaws."
What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out,
which is the exact opposite.
