comment What are the rationales behind that Java does not overwrite / remove its older updates after each update?
I was also wondering why they don't put a configurable option for whether you want to automatically uninstall the older versions or updates.

comment Elegant way to terminate the VirtualBox VBoxSVC.exe process
