Oh BTW, I just got this yesterday because apparently the IT people at my work when they re-imaged my computer put on the Java auto-updater.
Even worse than the Ask toolbar thing:
1) It pops up a UAC dialog with literally ZERO warning-- frankly it scared the shit out of me because I was listening to soft classical on my headphones and I didn't expect the UAC "bloop" at all
2) While going through the installer process, it steals focus about 4 times. STEALS FOCUS. This is 2012. And it STEALS FOCUS. Jesus fuck.
There's about 3 applications keeping Java on most computers: LogMeIn, WebEx, Minecraft. Can we work on getting those companies to figure it the fuck out? (Especially Minecraft, since its already ported to fucking XNA-- it runs on Xbox!) Once those are gone, we'll be in our well-deserved Java-free paradise.
<- I couldn't make my shit work, so here's a Godzilla head.
