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 there any important company left, that I can trust or like?


Depends on your definition of important. Do you mean publicly traded multinational corporations? Then no, and you should never have trusted any of them in the first place.
Do you mean smaller mainly privately owned companies? Then yes, this is the segment where you will find companies you can trust.

As someone said at my first ever job: it's better to be a big customer to a small company than a small customer to a big company.
