Round 1, Match 6 of the 2nd Programming Language World Championships! #plwc2020
@fribbledom Java was a mighty weapon against Microsoft. So much so they had to try to clone it as .NET.
A lot of technologies get blamed due to silver bullet chasing and poor engineers. I also work in deeply embedded and saw poorly conceived Java products, but I also saw poorly conceived C, C++, and assembly language projects; none of which were the language's fault.
Of course, Java took over from Pascal in CS studies, so dump of new grads.
