I started counting the attacks that people called me about and java was used in over half of them. I then counted how many times I myself needed it. I also asked those who had it installed to check how many times they needed it in a web site. When the attack/legitimate ran in the neighbor hood of 10 to one I decided java was no longer worth the risk. So I uninstalled it. Puter is safer and I a not missing java at all. I now look at java, even patched, as to great a risk to have on my puter and have advised others to uninstalled.
