Java and Linux - an open marriage in search of success
,----[ Quote ]
| That other pillar of open source, and creator of the GNU Project Richard
| Stallman, meanwhile, became one of Java's loudest opponents - sternly
| advising people not to install the closed-source evil that was Java, and
| giving Java as a dire example of corporate lock-in.
| Two years later Sun silenced the the baying crowd with OpenJDK - an
| open-source project based on Sun's closed-JDK codebase.
| Sun also released Java Standard Edition (Java SE) for the desktop, Java
| Mobile Edition (Java ME) for mobile devices and Glassfish - Sun's
| implementation of Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) - under GNU General
| Public License v2 (GPLv2). Sun said GPLv2 would achieve the objectives
| of "driving more volume and adoption for Java and maintaining the 'write once
| run anywhere compatibility' promise."
No Monovell. That's just Novell and Microsoft ganging up against /real/
GNU/Linux and Java because it's a powerful combination.
Study: Java still top programming language
,----[ Quote ]
| Java has its detractors, but according to a recent reading of the Tiobe
| Programming Community Index, it's still the dominant programming language,
| with little change in its overall popularity since August 2007. Runners up?
| C, (Visual) Basic, C++, and PHP.
