Why is Java Considered Un-Cool?

Watts JRE size? (1782 comments)

I just went to java.com and went to the manual download page (since the automatic page detected I have a JVM installed) and the "offline" installer I downloaded was 15,633,128 bytes (14.9MB, if you just want to toss numbers around). The net installer package was about 1.5MB. Where are you getting this 27MB number?
