Oracle has just filed a lawsuit againt Google for patent and copyright infringement related to Android's use of Java.
"In developing Android, Google knowingly, directly and repeatedly infringed Oracle's Java-related intellectual property. This lawsuit seeks appropriate remedies for their infringement," said Oracle spokesperson Karen Tillman.
Well, all I have to say is...RIP Java and RIP Oracle. After all the years that Sun spent building goodwill, Oracle has destroyed that in one fell swoop.
Someone will step up and build something better for Google/Android and, although that will be a rough transition, it will develop into something better for the PC/web as well.
.NET...here's your time to shine...
