Re: Is it actually over now?

@"it's surprising how hard some people find the concept of a function"

You own your house, but you don't own the name "Little Meadow Cottage", and you can't pretend to own someone elses house just because they called their house "Little Meadow Cottage" and you claim you own that name.

I think its an easy concept to explain. If Oracle had won, then it would own Dalvik VM, despite not writing that code.

@"But is it actually 100% over now?"

Nuisance lawsuits never die until the company pushing them dies. So I won't be using Oracle DBs in anything until they stop this shit.
