I put in a request with IT to fix the java on my work PC about two months ago, they still haven't fixed it. Our team needed new work phones as our network connections run through the phones then into the PC and this was causing a bottle neck in data transfer speed. When we're loading up / saving 2gb capital models this can be a pain so we've just got ourselves an upgrade. Great.
When the swanky new phone was loading up for the first time a java icon popped up. Even my work phone has java! And to top it all off my network speed has not changed. Bloody IT!
