Re: Necessity For Java?

Ryan Coverdell

I would rather listen to streaming audio via a default player like
windows media or real player. But many streaming audio, (especially
major sites like IHEART media, require some sort of web-based player.
So if you use your computer for streaming audio it might be good to
leave java installed. I'm not a tech person, but I have found that
sometimes small changes you make in a set-up can have consequences you
might not know about for a while. So I would somehow turn off the
up-dates but not uninstall it unless you're sure that you don't need
it for the programs you use. Regards, Ryan Coverdell from

Hello, everyone.

I am posting this quiry to both the JFW list, and the Jaws users list, so I
hope this is ok.

My question is as follows: How necessary is Java for today's computer

I seem to be having a problem with constant updates slowing down my
computer, and getting in the way of Jaws, and am seriously considering
uninstalling Java.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
