Thankfully, I don't run Windows anywhere so I don't get this. I'm surprised they don't bundle an AltaVista toolbar and a GIF clipart library from back in the days when desktop shovelware was common.

Yes, it is a shame that Oracle runs Java but Sun wasn't so great at it either. Both pushed for high cost, high complexity "enterprise edition" libraries that come and go like fashion but dragged their feet on streamlining the language itself.
