Java We don't cover the development platform wars as much as we should. But wherever you fall in the epic battle between .NET, Java, and LAMP, you'll probably enjoy the video after the jump.

I guess they mean, Java is past, present and future.

Not that I agree, .Net or Java are not my languages of choice. .Net is platform specific and in my experience people programming Java usually come up with very complicated solutions to simple problems. That seems to be the culture, or best practice.

All I can say to you is this: Once you've reached a certain level of software engineering skills, you can't write quick and dirty code anymore. Your brain refuses to let you do this. You absolutely HAVE to write clean and highly abstract and reusable code, there is no way back!

Java definitely supports clean solutions and proposes best practices by default over time, because the API itself is very consistent.

I second that! I just don't code anymore like I did 2 years ago...and if I look at my 'solutions' from back then...it just gives me the creeps.
