Right. But I think that's going to be more and more common in future. If
you rely on people installing proprietary stuff like JWS or applets then
it's a bleak future, as the way forward is clearly bundled JREs.

At some point I suspect someone will make a kind of "WebStart Next
Generation" without Oracle and start distributing a custom build of OpenJDK
+ their own platform/distribution stuff.

For example, a JRE that updates itself via Omaha on Windows would clearly
be superior to Oracle's solution:


Combined with a more modern app store like approach rather than JNLP or
applets and that'd be a winner, I think.
