Legal We're far from done with the Oracle v. Google lawsuit. The search giant has responded to the lawsuit, and Miguel De Icaza has provided a very interesting insight into the case. His report has been confirmed by James Gosling, known as the father of Java who left Sun right after the merger. Icaza speculates that the potential to monetise on Java by suing Google was pitched by Jonathan Schwartz during Sun's sales talks with Oracle. Oh boy.

What comes next?

A proprietary Java?
Will I be sued for developing apps with Java without paying a license fee?

Are there any technologies which oracle may destroy?

Does this have any consequence for googles agenda?

And for the End: Is there any important company left, that I can trust or like?
