Apple is changing their support for Java on Mac OS X?

I'm a bit confused about whether the Apple announcement regarding Java on Mac OS X is significant or not.

Here's The Register's view.

Here's CNET's view.

In general, building and maintaining a JVM for a platform is very expensive, and it's not clear that we need multiple JVMs on a platform. So if Apple no longer builds their own Java environment for the Mac, will there be a Sun/Oracle version? Will there be an OpenJDK version?

Just so long as there is something...
