The above is particularly funny if one just remembers
that teeny, tiny, piddling Java detail: the stack
based, byte coded Java Virtual Machine. Your

The C/C++/Java guy is not in the audience for stealing
a march on the competition. He will change his tune
only when the big companies tells him to (ask him
about C# and you might catch him looking over his
shoulder to see if Microsoft heard his comment). His
students will likely be the interchangeable commodity
building blocks that parts of the industry desire. Bah
