No. It matters. And I don't care what version of java, I really dislike
it, because *it's* broken; or, rather, it failed at what it was supposed
to do: a) solve the software backlog, and b) it supposedly guaranteed no
null pointer references, and useful error messages.

It did not solve the backlog, and after the huuuge stack traces and
usually unhelpful error messages.... And it eats memory, including the Sun
implementation. It's just Pascal w/ p-code, revived.

      mark "java, why did it have to be java?"
