Oh, yeah.

Or better yet - let's just code everything in assembler. These high-level languages are just so top-heavy...

Real managers consider future risk as a cost. You either do not consider future risk, or don't understand the risk implied. Either way you seem not so much a "serious manager" as a day trader pretending to manage.

Why is it that Android haters generally sound so unhinged? Do you think Microsoft or Apple will someday reimburse you for the hours you fritter away spewing vitriol across the internet?

This guy is obviosuly a android obsessed google troll!!!!

The author here talk like a morn of the highest calibur...

This case is very simple.... NO MATTER HOW THE GOOGLE OBSESSED GEEK WORLD wants to twist it.... VERY SIMPLE.

Did google need to have a license to use that JAVA... = YES.
Did google OBTAIN that required license... = NO

Case settled, the emails PROVE google ignored the licensing requirements.

Put another way...

If i create a wonderful technology, and I want people to get creative and create markets... I make it open source and let them have it WITH CONDITIONS AND STIPULATIONS.....

If you are going to USE MY TECHNOLOGY to gain BILLION$$$ in revenue, then I AM ENTITLED TO SOME OF THAT...

PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well it sure is obvious that you are an android loving loser pathetic geek!!!!!

And its also obvious that your ignorance would never allow you into any serious management role as making decisions based on emotion is what will doom ANY company including yours...
So THANK GOD you are not responsible for making decisions as it is obvious you are the true definition of a FANBOY choosing products NOT ON THEIR VALUE but instead on your severely disturbed emotional connection to them.

If Oracle wants to close off APIs, its going to fail.

APIs are how you collaborate and communicate with systems outside of your own.

Trying to shut those off is like denying the existence of oxygen.

The competition will be saying its open APIs are its selling point and that it will never try to charge people for using its APIs, and charge them again for buying its products...

Now maybe Oracle is trying to kill off Java, in which case its going about it in the quickest way possible, but I wonder if its really smart to do that in the Enterprise space. (Apple has already deprecated Java in its IDE and has gotten rid of any trace of Java in its consumer products.)

Maybe Oracle is trying to promote its own application development system, but its trying to do so in a very dubious manner...

If I was a corporation with my data in Oracle databases, I'd set up a task force to migrate my data off of Oracle and begin investigating other database storage schemes.

re: Oracle And The End Of Programming As We Know It
Without going into the merits of Oracle's and Google's cases, your view of Oracle are highly biased, and it shows through, and it detracts from the article. Oracle certainly employs many talented and passionate software developers, and "developer DNA" there is as pervasive as in any other first-rate software company.
