Apple no longer creates the Java implementation as of Java 7, Oracle does. Java is no longer automatically installed with the OS, but using anything that references Java causes the installation to be automatically triggered.
That's a far cry from "removing Java" as if Java can no longer be used on OS X.
Please don't post uninformed or incomplete information as if it were fact.
Hogwash. Apple is not trying to kill off Java. They, very rightly, decided that Oracle was best positioned to create the Java implementation, just as it does for the other major platforms. They went out of their way to do so when Sun would not. Doesn't sound like "trying to kill it" to me.
And bringing the Flash strawman fallacy into the conversation just discredits your stance.
