Lync Server depends on J# – are you serious? its 2010 you know!

So I just noticed that Lync Server has J# as a pre-req – this fills me with yucky feelings, Am I the only one who feels uncomfortable with a pre-req that doesn’t support the OS we are required to install to and is due to expire support long before the product itself?
I quote a few nuggets of nastiness:
From the redist download page :
    • Supported Operating Systems:Windows Server 2003, Enterprise x64 Edition;Windows Server 2003, Standard x64 Edition;Windows Vista Business 64-bit edition;Windows Vista Enterprise 64-bit edition;Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit edition;Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit edition;Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit edition;Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
From the J# Developer center homepage :“Product Announcement - January 10, 2007: … Visual J# 2.0 Redistributable Second Edition is targeted for release in the second quarter of 2007, with support continuing through to 2017 (5 years mainstream and 5 years extended support) on EN-US locales.”
