Legal Java creator James Gosling: "Just because Sun didn't have patent suits in our genetic code doesn't mean we didn't feel wronged. While I have differences with Oracle, in this case they are in the right. Google totally slimed Sun. We were all really disturbed, even Jonathan: he just decided to put on a happy face and tried to turn lemons into lemonade, which annoyed a lot of folks at Sun." Ouch. Also, doesn't jive with Schwartz' comments - might be illustrative of how bad things really were at the once great Sun.

Java if you want an over-engineered solutions that takes a gig of ram and 1 second of wall-clock time to print 'hello world.' C++ if you want to crash and burn, while you spend all day hunting the f**king memory issue that core dumps almost randomly! Ada Forever!!!!

AND YES - I AM ONLY JOKING.
