Yes, like many others, I want up to date Java support on the Mac! I don't care if it comes from Apple or Sun, but I want it. The Mac is very popular in the opensource Java development community, and these über geeks are very visible (just look at conference pictures) and are purchasing advisors in their work places in "business oriented" departments, i.e. not limited to the creative workers, and also in their families (my parents, sister and parents in law each have several Macs).
So Apple, read this: if you neglect Java developers, you will loose marketshare.
