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.

Is a nut case.

Did you see the comment he made at the end of his diatribe about what he thinks is going on?

It doesn't help to take anything seriously, that he says that is for sure.

Oh yeah, here it is:

"Google could settle current damages with Oracle, and switch to the better designed, more pleasant to use, and more open .NET platform. "

The guy must be in love with himself. .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.

Right in the heart of Redmond Land, Great Britain. Home of the "Microsoftoids" as I call them. Great Britain is vehemently anti open source. Microsoft has paid of sooooooo many people there it isn't funny.

So imagine my <sarcasm> surprise</sarcasm> a few years back when I heard of the London Stock Exchange declaring with Ballmer in tow, that all Exchange software will be converted to the .Net and Microsoft platform.

Not that it surprised me any when I heard the announcement. Microsoft is a darling of the various political groups in Great Britain and has paid them millions of pounds in political contributions.

So when even _they_ seen how aweful .Net was from top too bottom for doing anything more serious than running Aunt Granny's front page and forms extensions for her flower store front on the web, it all came crashing down one afternoon as the exchange ground to ahalt, not just once, but it had to take like 6 months of crap too happen before the Brits finally realized.

It ain't gonna work.

Then we got Icaza trying to bring that complete and utter FAILURE he calls a "better designed platform" than Java to Linux.

I am speechless.

Maybe you two should get together for drinks because you two seem to be of the same mindset.

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.

If you think .net is a complete and utter failure you're in the same crazy boat that you want to put Icaza in.

De Icaza have shown that he is nothing more than Microsoft shill. I knew that, but now I have a prof. Now everyone can see what scum he is.


Did your master Stallman tell you to write that, or were you able to think of this all on your own?

Seriously now, seek therapy, you need it.

Microsoft hasn't sued over Mono yet, no one has sued over their runtime yet, and yet ANOTHER Java lawsuit just happened. So where was he wrong?

Haters gonna hate I guess :-)
