"Lion sucks!!!"

January 15, 2012  |  By lawrencemorton

 |  Version: Apple Java for OS X 10.6 Update 6

Pros

The pros of this operating system revision are: NONE!

Cons

This "update" is clearly a step behind and only brings more problems than it solves.

Summary

I highly recommend to those considering this upgrade to stop now, enjoy the version you have, and stay away from Lion as far as you can. It is a complete can of worms and the benefits are hardly, if possible, to find anywhere. In fact, can anyone name a single benefit of this operating system upgrade? I've yet to find a single one...

"Java installation problem "broke" NeoOffice, simple fix"

March 10, 2011  |  By KerryGinn--2008

 |  Version: Apple Java for OS X 10.6 Update 4

Pros

Apple's newest version is closer to the Java standard used by other platforms.

Cons

Problems with automatic update can be difficult to diagnose. (I set the product rating to 3 stars only because I was required to select a rating; I would have preferred not to rate it.)

Summary

On some machines, Apple's automatic update leaves an older version of Java running in tandem with the updated version, causing NeoOffice to crash upon startup. Fix/workaround: Open the utility Java Preferences.app and uncheck, or turn off, the obsolete versions in the General pane; leave the newest version turned on. In the one case that I saw, the two entries for the new Java version, both 64-bit and 32-bit, were marked "(System)", the older ones were not.

October 27, 2010  |  By BradMacPro

Reasonably modern.

It may be years before someone convinces Sun to release newer versions for the Mac.
