Oracle, You Ignorant Slut

We all fully expect to be prompted to install something asinine like the Yahoo! Toolbar when we trial freeware or what not. And while Java is "free" to the consumer (3 billion devices they advertise like a petulant Jay Leno to Dave Letterman; "We're #1!"), it comes across as cheap and sneaky when a software giant like Oracle wants to "by-default" install MacAfee during Flash upgrades and whatnot.

Then again Microsoft has been doing that for years.

Wherefore art thou pride, oh Oracle?

I'm quite thankful I'm no longer a Solaris administrator.
