Paul Graham about Java - #1

It could be that in Java’s case I’m mistaken. It could be that a language promoted by one big company to undermine another, designed by a committee for a “mainstream” audience, hyped to the skies, and beloved of the DoD [= “Department of Defense”], happens nonetheless to be a clean, beautiful, powerful language that I would love programming in. It could be, but it seems very unlikely.
