And why wasn’t Java mentioned in any of the press related to all of this? Java is what the lawsuit was all about, wasn’t it? Rick Ross at JavaLobby had some interesting stuff in his newsletter. He asks/wants to know if Sun is going to use the money from the settlement to “better”‘ Java. I sure hope so. I have a very awkward feeling right now with the state of the Java universe.
Here is a question to ponder. Would Sun, Java, and IBM be better off if Sun sold Java to IBM? I’m not ready to give my opinion, but I would love to hear what the rest of the Java world thinks about that. I don’t get much feedback here so I think I’ll post that one on JavaRanch. Check back for a link to the post.
