Comment: I think differently (Score 1) 314

Its already destroyed. Oracle just don't have the mojo Sun had. Try searching for things on java and you invariably end up with an Oracle landing page that doesn't remember all the knowledge Sun had shared. Check out their wiki now, its bloody pathetic. Check out the old Sun blog site and you would see useless junk. Oracle is the wrong steward for Java and that is never going to change. I bailed out and am now spending my free time working with Nodejs and Mongodb. Alas, its only a matter of time before some heartless and soul-less company like Oracle buys both of them and give them a kiss of death.

I think this is probably one place Stallman would be saying "I told you so" with no great enthusiasm and one place where Adam Smith finds himself with an all mighty hard-on and smug self satisfied grin that will make your skin crawl now that Ole Shylock has his pound of flesh and lo, without a drop of blood being spilled.
