Comment Silver Linings (Score 1) 524

I was going to get indignant about this but it's Yahoo!. So you get kicked off the ship twelve months before it sinks? That just increases the likelihood that you'll get to watch the inevitable from dry land.

And in any event, anyone working from home and working for Yahoo! should have spent the last 2 years finding a better job.

Comment Oracle doesn't care about Java in the browser (Score 2, Interesting) 367

Java is worthless in the browser and I doubt that Oracle cares if it's removed. They might even prefer it.

Rather, Java's worth to Oracle is primarily as an internal tool for creating products/services and secondarily a means for providing easy extensibility and connectivity to developers that code to the interfaces those products expose.

The days of Sun evangelizing Java as the Second Coming and pimping it everywhere they can are over. It's just a means to an end at Oracle.
