Java Sun Microsystems has announced the release of an open-source version of its Java Development Kit for Java Platform Standard Edition. Sun has contributed the software to the OpenJDK Community as free software under the GNU GPLv2. Sun also announced that OpenJDK-based implementations can use the JCK (Java SE 6 Technical Compatibility Kit) to establish compatibility with the Java SE 6 specification. OpenBSD has already started importing the release.

Moral: English changes, like it or not. Also, don't do the thing you're complaining about as you're complaining about it, it just shows that you're wrong to complain about it in the first place.


Could I get that again? And in slow motion this time? ;)

Anyway... there is a clear relationship between nouns and verbs so if one was truly a "language purist" one would appreciate the mechanics of languages. Driver=noun, driving=verb. The driver is driving. Did the verb stem from the noun or opposite. What was it called before it was called 'driving'? Did people object about a driver beaing used as a noun. I'm using google therefore I am googling. Seems perfectly acceptable to me. One could perhaps call a person using a seek engine for a googler? ;)
