Java Well, this is about as surprising as Fiona Apple being awesome in every possible way. Google has announced that it has withdrawn itself from JavaOne, an annual conference on, well, Java. The cited reason? Oracle suing Google over Android's use of Java, of course.

See, that's exactly the kind of thing I don't like about Thom's writing.

You won't like 98% of tech writers then, almost every tech site i go on people compare what they are talking about to SOMETHING else.

Learn to chill out man.

I don't think I need to chill, since I am not upset or angry or anything like that.

Yes, others do compare stuff to SOMETHING, but it's usually something widely known and accepted. Ars stories are (for the most part) a good example of impersonal style of writing.

This site is not (supposed to be) a blog, AFAIK.

My apologies for trying to widen your view on the world. When I read stuff, I like to be challenged, and come across new things. I love references to obscure stuff because it means I'm learning.
