Good to know Apple cleans up their mistakes!
Uhh, they have yet to comment or release a fix for the Mac Mini video issues. I don't think cleaning up mistakes is at the top of Apple's list.

It installed on my machine though it wasn't having any problems after the 10.3.9 update--shouldn't it know if there's a problem or not by checking for the java version result? I sure hope things are still ok after a restart.

I had problems lauching all my java apps including limewire. So all i did was reinstall the security update and it fixed all the problems.

It's a good thing that they've fixed it, but the problem should have been caught before 10.3.9 came out, therefore I vote a big fat Negative. Apple needs to stop beta-testing their products on their consumers. One of the reasons we're paying Apple $129 every year for an OS is so things like this don't happen.

A negative? one cannot always test for problems like these, things happen problems occur. At least Apple is getting on top of things and not screwing around. Plus one does not pay $129 a year, its by choice that people are buying the os when it comes out. People should just chill, enjoy things instead of finding little problems that many people stress on. people don't stress the little things! Enjoy ur mac :D Would u rather have a windows?

Same here: No problems on any of my three Macs before update. Not sure it is worth installing.

What video problems? I haven't had any video problems.
I have noticed that it's a little sensitive when you have a VGA monitor plugged in. If the monitor connector kinda' saggs down then the monitor goes black, but if you prop it up it works fine.

doesnt show in tiger :eek:
Do you know if in Tiger "Stuffit Expander" is gone? I've heard rumors that Stuffit Expander isn't in Tiger any more. Of course if you installed Stuffit Deluxe it'd still be there, but even in upgrades it seems like Tiger is removing Stuffit Expander from systems and not installing it in the baseos.

Bull. Not at this kind of level. This is hardly an isolated incident. I deal with Windows and their PITA monthly patch release at work always wondering if I'm going to have a system that this or that patch is going to FUBAR this time around. This is the kind of BS I expect from MS who have 100,000 possible configurations to support not a company that is supposedly famed for crafting their OS around their hardware. Maybe my expectations are high but again its one thing where you have a few people here and there its another when its relatively widespread. Both people I know that have iBooks got hit with this bug and as far as I know both are running pretty much the vanilla installs of Panther. It boils down to this: Not cool.

One cannot test and find such a major screw-up like effing up Java on A LOT of machines? Obviously, this was was a huge problem...never seen Apple seed out a fix to one of the OS updates.

Apple was not on top of this...
1. For letting this major bug get out
2. For taking this long to get the fix out

But, at least Apple sucked it up and got the fix out there into Software Update (instead of trying to make users try and fix it themselves like they tried a few days ago)
