Java going away

Saw this today. Any thoughts on long-term impact of the many SageTV plugins' viability?

Rest in Hell Java Plug-In

Java is not going away

Oracle's blog is in response to the fact that browsers have started to move away from the NPAPI that has been used for the last 20 years, which is used by Adobe, Java, and Silverlight. This means that Java Applets, in the browser, no longer work. Oracle has a choice. They can create a Java Plugin for each of the browsers's respective plugin technology, or, just retire the Java Plugin. They opted for the latter, since, doing this work to support a Java Plugin for a specific browser is futile, and, mobile browsers still won't support it.

Java as a language is not going away, and has no impact on SageTV. Java is still the #1 programming language being used today... being very strong in enterprise, and Android.

Hope that puts any fears to rest that somehow java is going away
