There is a petition out there which really deserves your attention if you’re a Java user and especially a Java programmer: Oracle Corporation: Stop bundling Ask Toolbar with the Java installer!

It is demeaning for Java to be treated like some second-hand adware ridden software. If is a great technology platform with hundreds of thousands of man hours invested in it running on millions of machines. Give it the treatment it deserves! Sign the petition today! And share the news with your friend and acquaintances!

Thank you!

PS. I know that signing petitions is a small gesture in the big picture of things. Still, I’m hopeful that if we come out in numbers, Oracle will think about this request.
