Of course not. They are profiting from the system the way it is now.

Agreed but I still loved that series. I watched it again recently it was hilarious and I was filled with 90's nostalgia.
Visual Studio has conflicts every time 2 devs change something in that giant XML project file. Maybe one day Microsoft will understand how to write a diff tool properly. The huge design flaw of partial classes is to blame. Luckily the Java guys at IntelliJ provide team-city to solve it for them.
It's an exploit in the Java Plugin - not Java itself but whatever - let's get the Oracle hate going.
WTF? It's the only game in town. What language did you expect to become successful? Any other language requires a plug-in which makes it not universal - so therefore we all just stick with what's going to run across all the browsers - even though it's a shitty language.
A while back I wanted to add a patch to an open source project that had been hosted on sourceforge and the dev had moved it to google code. After 6 months of him not replying to my request to patch his library (and showing no activity at all) I contacted both sourcforge and google code about taking over the project.
Sourceforge put me on a 3 month waiting list while they attempted to contact the original dev. Google simply gave me admin rights to his project THE NEXT DAY. Needless to say the dev contacted me soon after. If I had been an asshole I could have locked him out completely and PWNED his project. I was nice and let him have admin rights again.
That's why I like Sourceforge. Hosting code is their business so they take it seriously. Google? They're just an advertising company.
