Java a "niche language"?

That's like saying transport vans are "rather obscure".

Also:

Google wins Oracle v. Google. Big victory for fair use.

Ummm ... no . This is not about "fair use" of someone's "intellectual property" (scare quotes intended), it's about someone inventing a whole new type of "intellectual property" so that he can homestead it for a quick buck, which is more like conquistador expedition.
