I passed out of grad college as an electronics engineer with little background of programming and luckily enough my first job involved Java/j2ee. The need of the hour was to learn it. It was hard for a month, everything after that was an love affair.
Since those old days, I simply couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that Microsoft’s Windows-based servers still exist in the market having a share as large as 20% where Linux was 65+%. Sooner I realized, easier it became to grasp that I wasn’t the only one troubled with it.
Java may not still be the best Web (internet) programming language but there’s always win of Open standards like PHP because of the ease of programming. But, Java still is the weapon of choice in the Enterprise Business market.
JavaWorld has come up with a trailer for a mock movie called “Java 4-ever,” where a young man is born in a Microsoft fan .Net-obsessed family and due to some inevitable consequences falls in love with Java and Open Source. Featuring in the movie are mock characters “William Windows”, “Mona Lisa Harddrive,”, “Scala Johansson”, “Eddie Larrison” and “Lenny Linux” 🙂
I wish this movie was for Real!
