Will somebody pass the popcorn, ta.
Crazy Larry and the OSS community were always going to mix just like oil and water.
This sort of conflict was completely foreseeable from the day that Oracle announced they were going to borg Sun.
So much for all the assurances that Oracle made to the EC regarding their careful stewardship of Java, which was the EC's main concern that held up the deal for some months.
It is abundantly clear that now Oracle have got what they wanted they are going to just go ahead and do what they do best which is to toss their customers the bird while bending them over and going at it as hard as possible at every opportunity.
Oracle is such a horrible company. At least MS *pretends* to be all cute and cuddly.
Oracle just tend to hit you on the head repeatedly while shouting "stop hitting yourself!" and then steal your lunch when they get bored.
Just as well I've given up on caring about this sort of shit. I've already concluded that the world has gone to shit in every possble way, whether it be the persecution of wikileaks by so called "western democratic governments", the financial raping of the man in the street by virtually every corporation on the planetm, the rapid degeneration of presonal freedoms for people living in "free" countries or even the constant attempts to engender guilt in the general public by the climate change ecotards whose primary goal is to make money from this misplaced collective guilt of the masses.
It's all fucked. Everything. The sooner the revolution starts the better if you ask me.
Wow, I didn't start this post intending to have a rant but there you go, I ranted anyway.
