Why I really hate Java

Will someone please explain to me why Sun Microsystems create one installer per update for the Java 2 Platform Standard Edition (J2SE Runtime Environment)? Yes, I have now 5 Java updates, all around 120 MB.

Why not patch the existing install, and stop creating new entries in my installed programs for the same program? It is almost as bad as Microsoft, but at least each entry from them is actually a different piece of software.

Wow, I really needed to get that one off my chest. Thanks for wasting my hard disk space guys.
