BeOS & Derivatives The OpenJDK Porters Group approved by a unanimous vote the proposal submitted by the recently formed Haiku Java Team to port OpenJDK to Haiku. This makes Haiku the first OS platform to be sponsored by the Porters Group, and it means that the port is now officially part of the OpenJDK family of projects endorsed by Sun. The team already has a mailing list and a project home page; a mercurial repository is also on its way. Team lead Bryan Varner gives his latest update here on his blog.

Do you guys think that prior to 1995, there was a dark ages in software?


Um... yes

You know, people were playing games, watching movies, creating media content, doing office work, browsing the net, using client/server achtiectures etc, well before Java and .NET were released to the world.


Well, a minority of computer users were even browsing the net prior to 1995 anyway...

In any case, you're arguing for the non-usefulness of Java - a difficult and bold position to uphold. Perhaps in *your* world it's not useful, but it's clearly not a dead technology.
