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.

.Net has the privilege of being one of the only architectures I can remember in recent history. That has utterly and completely failed in I mean a spectacular way.

For a failed platform there sure are a lot of .net books at my local Barnes and Nobles.

The Java sections shrink a little more each year.
