I used to run Java because some web sites required it. I still need it for one of the programs my broker supplies. And I needed a different version of Java because I was running IBM's DB2 database management system and needed it for something (I forget what. Some reports, some other utilities.) I no longer use DB2, running postgreSQL instead that does not use Java. Most web sites do not require it. Recently, I got rid of two versions of Java, and keep the last one only for my broker.

But I cannot get rid of that. At least, I get a warning whenever it is out of date so I can get the latest version.
