Having thought about what I actually use Java for on Mac OS X (now that Apple’s indicated it’s deprecated). Probably the main ones are
- Eclipse (Free development environment for many languages, not just Java)
- NeoOffice/OpenOffice (Free alternatives to Microsoft Office)
- GanttProject, a free Gantt charting and project management app
- FreeMind, a free mind mapping application
I guess I’ll just have to fire up Java under Windows in Parallels? I guess if I’m happy to give Google all my information I could replace my use of NeoOffice with Google Docs.
