Submission + - Tim Cooks Wins Where Steve Jobs Failed: Java (infoworld.com)

GMGruman writes: "As Woody Leonhard writes, the recent Flashback Trojan that infected nearly 700,000 Macs exposed a big rift between Apple and Oracle on who should take responsibility for keeping Java securely patched. 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."
