It has been a while since I last used my Vista box at home. The Apple MacBook Pro that I own since January has been my primary workhorse ever since. Anyway, while I was updating my Vista machine with the necessary updates of all sorts, the following catches my eye:
Java Update was trying to convince me to update my Java version to the latest JDK 6 update 15 or so. Nothing special there, but notice that gradient on top of the Welcome screen that was next. Especially the colors. Apparently Sun is slowly fading to red. It’s probably a subtle hint to prepare us for Oracle. In general I’m not particularly fond of the color red. Most of the time it stands for no good. Traffic lights, bank account balance, socialism, … Oh well, I make an exception here for red lipstick 😉 So, let’s wait and see how this color suits Java.
