The war room is occupied
Interesting stance for a Microsoftie given they've just won the JEDI contract. To run wars. In the cloud.
Microsoft signed Oracle's contributor agreement "in the past week" and is officially joining OpenJDK, the official open-source implementation of Java, according to a senior product manager at the Redmond-based machine. In a post to the OpenJDK mailing list, Bruno Borges, Microsoft's principal product manager for Java …
Borges said Microsoft will initially be working on "smaller bug fixes and backports so that we can learn how to be good citizens within OpenJDK" – perhaps a recognition that some distrust of the company remains within the Java and open-source community.
A Most Equitable Servant Master Arrangement. What's not to Like when One is in an AI Leading Position with Future Productions for AIRealisation into Virtual Presentation via Remote Tele Visualised Communications Channels, in Almightily Sublime Internetworking Networks.
Fight against that for any reason and you are in grave crazy danger ... of being immediately fully certified universally insane.
Steer clear of those clearly enough identified paths for they all lead to a Quick Merciful Oblivion when Not Worthy of Further Exemplary Punishment.
:-) Crikey, that last sentence was very war-like introducing as it does a whole new arsenal of global command and remote virtual control weapons. And a little something for the JEDI Program for sure, I'd hazard a guess.
Pentagon Pep Talks is wonderfully reciprocated in this thoroughly Chinese Point of View
Can you imagine them both working extremely well together? Tell me then there is nothing that cannot be done remarkably quickly, and we would certainly never disagree.
Seems like an interesting union to explore and experiment in. What/Whom do you know works in such as are most probably and therefore quite definitely, EMPhatICQ Ethereal Fields ‽ .
And who/what roots and routes for your home team players in such fields? Anyone/Anything you can mention?
What should be obvious to EVERYONE, especially if you actually look at the TIOBE index history and compare Java to C-pound, you'll see that C-pound is under 4%, whereas Java is nearly 17% and has been #1 (occasionally trading places with C) for a VERY! LONG! TIME!
C-pound is *very* ".Not"ty. I think that's the reason it's not doing very well, because ".Not" *STINKS*.
Java, on the other hand, is established as a true cross-platform language, one reason why Oracle and others use it for, well, CROSS PLATFORM stuff.
C-Pound in the early noughties was Microshaft's response to an attempted HOSTILE TAKEOVER of the Java language, which Sun (at the time) was NOT going to allow to happen!
I have to wonder about MS's TRUE motivations with being involved in OpenJDK. Are they going to attempt a HOSTILE TAKEOVER of Java again???
I appreciate the name C-Pound and not wanting to call it C-Hash but there is actually a better name for it.
It started life as a language called Microsoft Cool.
I like the name Cool#. It sounds like a retarded kid.
Be with the hip bob kids and write code in MS Cool.
Java has achieved the position of the default language in business software. It is the new COBOL.
I don't think Microsoft will attempt any "hostile takeover" of Java again, because by now it would be futile, and there is no need if customers can be enticed to run standard Java but in the Microsoft cloud. This is actually a happy outcome.
Whatever you might think of Microsoft, and I can't quite recall whether you've ever expressed an opinion, it's a huge stretch to state C# is "not doing very well". Using TIOBE is about as useful as putting all the language names in a hat and pulling them out. Using an equally dubious method of popularity, there's a broadly-similar amount of Java and C# jobs in London which isn't really surprising for two long-established languages with fairly easy switching for devs between the two.
