Java is the most inane language. I did Java for half a year in a day job in 2000. At the time, i was not really sure what i was doing. (this is a typical situation when coding in a day job on someone else's project.) Then, in 2005 i studied Java in some detail, and wrote my tutorial. However, i actually don't code Java, am not good at it, and will never code anything in Java. (am rather sad that Google choose it as its main lang. (but, it's still much better than C or C++.))
Also, of all big software companies, i HATE Sun Microsystems with passion. It is the company with the most despicable marketing fuck, and loves to create random meaningless jargons and abuse established terms. For detail on the jargon part, see:
Of all the 2 thousand tech tutorials and essays i wrote about computing in the past 10 years, i consider the “What are OOP's Jargons and Complexities” piece to be among the top 5 most significant. Am proud of it.
