Java In the midst of the dual events Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne (overshadowed, of course, by the iPhone event) Oracle took a number of steps that show that they still care about making a go of Java on the desktop.

Story is missing the FUD

After the MySQL.com hacking story, with the ludicrous FUD about Java and security (paraphrased: "Oracle bought^H^H^H^H^H^H^H owns Java, Oracle owns MySQL[.com], ergo Java has security issues"), I'm surprised you didn't also lace this story with a sprinkle of selectively-quoted fear-by-association.

I would have aired my disgust on that story but commenting is now locked after 5 days. What's up with that? I mean, there's often only a few stories every 5 days, why archive/lockdown stuff that is still on the frontpage?

Agreed, blocking commenting after 5 days is stupid. Someone once replied to a comment of mine and I couldn't reply back cuz it got locked in between. STUPID.

Well, Thom didn't post this story, I did. ;)

EDIT: Or rather, Thom posted it in unmodified form... Anyway I just checked out the MySQL story and it seemed like it was that quoted analyst slinging the FUD more than Thom himself...

Hence I said, "Selectively quoted."

I'm sure you can find some "analyst" slating any technology. There's plenty of ridiculous content on the Internet. It was Thom's decision to include the quote.
