Maybe I wrong, but I thought that Java was one of the core frameworks on 
the Mac. If I remember correctly, earlier Apple stated that they were 
going to make Java into one of the ways of doing Cocoa programming. 
Though with the last 2 releases of the OS they seem to be drifting away 
from that.

Regarding Carbon, I think they are looking for a zero carbon footprint 
:) (couldn't resist!)

That aside, I think under the Mac section MacSword should be listed 
first. I was surprised about BpBible, as I didn't know that could run on 
the Mac.
