Since 6 weeks now, I’m working on a new project with new colleagues in a totally different environment of what I’ve been doing for many years.
I am now the only Mac user in the middle of Linux boys and I would like to share experiences of the comparisons in between Mac OS & Linux with both Mac and Linux freaks.
Ever wanted to save your favorite photos for free.

When upgrading from Lion to Mountain Lion, Java was disabled from the system.
Since latest operating system update, Java plugin is disabled from every browsers.

Future is not likely to fall in love again as soon as an upcoming OS update should disable Java from OS where it hasn’t been used for a while.
Apple says Java brings security leaks to its systems and disables it to avoid them.

After installing it on my own Macbook three days ago, I can say it’s fast. It looks stable even if it’s much too early to say.
