Java to Be Removed from Ubuntu, Uninstalled from User Machines

Ubuntu users will be searching for an alternative for Sun-Java JDK in the near future due to the retirement of the license from Oracle. Canonical will soon be losing the right to distribute JDK on its systems.

Users who have the ‘sun-java-6′ package installed on their system will see it removed via a future software update آ– the exact date of which is ‘TBD’.
