Just a few months ago I was trying to help a student get a Java-based project running on a Windows 10 machine. It turns out that Windows 10 causes Java to lag like whoa, throttling it down to 6 fps or so. It overclocks the processor to a degree unprecedented on any other machine, including previous Windows machines. But you'll only discover this if you Google and find complaints by startled Minecraft players, all of whom have shared a) unofficial bootstrap workarounds b) the silence from both Microsoft and Sun.

Presumably both tech companies are following the traditional "if we ignore this problem it doesn't exist and then in ten months we'll quietly roll out the solution so you see we were right it didn't exist after all" model of tech solutions.

(I feel like I should say, this is not an endorsement of Java, which has its own problems.)
