Re: Friends don't let friends install Java.

I keep getting addies for the retarded idea of pulling "JavaScript to the server side", which makes about as much sense as cutting off a leg to move more elegantly.

This morning from O'Reilly

How well do you know JavaScript? According to Kyle Simpson, not well enough. It's easy to learn parts of JavaScript, or focus on the good parts, he says, but much harder to learn it completely. Fortunately, he's here to help.


At least Java is a language that has some reasonable (though old-school/clunky) design and a skillbase behind it. Maybe it's time to move to F#
