Is that why Java rules the enterprise and Microsoft is relegated as a distant outsider? Java pretty much dominates enterprise development. C#? Not so much. Just ask the London stock exchange for experience with Microsoft and C#.
You should have a look at the C# license. I believe it stipulates that you must maintain compatibility with core classes or face the consequences.
Oracle's lack of quality control has brought untold numbers of zero days which has eroded confidence and trust in the 'compile once run everywhere promise.' Likewise Google has fractured the mobile handset and tablet eco-system with too many variants of a 'standard' framework . Both companies should be taken to court by a class action lawsuit and sued for a gazillion dollars.
By that logic, Microsoft should be exterminated for the havoc they've inflicted on the computing industry for releasing an OS as porous as a cheese cloth and a house of cards for a foundation.
Java is no longer the carrot/bait to get users to buy Sun computers. Java is far more important than commodity hardware and Sun took too long to realize that or monetize Java's value like Oracle is trying to.
Frankly, IP laws are quite lax if Google can simply take major parts of Java, reimplement the remaining parts, and pay Oracle exactly $0.
Your recollection of history is quite lax. The VM patents Oracle asserted against Google were all defeated. All Oracle had left was the SSO of 37 Java API's. If the SSO of a subset of an API collection can be copyrighted then the US software industry is in for a world of hurt.
Personally, if Oracle wins on copyright, I hope IBM goes after Oracle.

This explains where our alien technology came from.
Here's what Sundar Pichai actually said minus the selective editing from that 'iOnApple' hack at NetworkWorld.
Sorry, the premise of the question is because Android is open, it has more security issues? Respectfully, I’m not sure that’s a correct premise of the question. Open platforms historically undergo a lot of scrutiny, but there are a lot of advantages to having an open source platform from a security standpoint. I would argue that it’s the best way for a platform to be secure, because every researcher in the world can inspect it, every developer in the world can inspect it, and I think that contributes a lot to Android security.
Android was built to be very, very secure. The thing that you’re seeing is because Android is an open platform, many people can ship Android in many different ways and so there are some partners when they ship devices, they have an older version of Android. And sure you can have a security vulnerability there, but that doesn’t mean Android isn’t secure. We go to great lengths–the depth of work in Android to make it secure; the depth of work done by Google PlayGoogle Play automatically scans and verifies thousands of applications for malware. We track data on this. It’s state of the art in terms of what we do. What you see across the ecosystempeople will ship good phones and keep them updatedyou will have some phones that will not be updated. That’s where we see issues. Not Android at a fundamental level.

Posting anonymously since I'm a motoroogle employee... you'll be disappointed. I certainly am. At this point, I expect google to shut us down or spin us off.
I'm sure if you trace his IP (with a GUI written in VB, of course) you'll find that it originated from a basement.
I'd be fine with that. It's a POS app that requires a 365 subscription to even use.
No, Microsoft is still the Microsoft of old. They'll never change regardless of what they say. They're still the same old company that'll do anything in their power to sabotage the competition. It's no wonder the OEM's despise them and are flocking to Google.
Perhaps Microsoft should stop spreading FUD about Google? Or perhaps they should stop forming shill organizations to do their dirty work by proxy. Or perhaps they should stop trying to undermine Google by pleading with governments to investigate them for anti-trust violations. But, let's start off easily and just retire those pathetic and embarrassing Gmail Man ads. I have to give credit to Google for graciously hosting them on YouTube - I would have deleted their account and blocked their IP.
Microsoft is simply getting what they deserve. If you want to act like a jerk then prepare for the blow back.
A criminal government helping out a convicted price fixing criminal? Were you expecting another outcome?
This will make companies think twice about offering their patents for SE technologies.
Which is nice, given all that they've contributed to Linux.
I wouldn't call junk a contribution.
