I really love those endless entertaining bashy discussions about the most widely used programming language in histoty. You hatefull guys out there would not even be able to use your credit card for making a single checkout, your bank would not be able to do a single transaction, your online experience would simply not be existent, but no problem, you would not notice because you would have no phone in your pocket to consume all this irrelevant stuff, made with a robust, highly optimized and reliable language...Sure Java is no beauty, it is sheere Power...powering an immense part of the digital world we live in. please stop whining an face one of the most advanced pieces of information technologies ever. it is here to stay. P.S.: without Java your favourite toy would be named only "Script" ...would be sad, wouldn't it? ;-)


I wish, but unfortunately I do backend work in Java as well. The relative expressiveness and simplicity of JavaScript saves me from Stockholm syndrome, I guess. But still... Every time I touch Java I have to puke a little in my mouth while tears of blood roll down my cheeks and my soul dies a little. The horror.
