Java is dead...
I just downloaded Flash 10. It installed in less than a minute into my FF2 browser.
No pimping for Yahoo. No annoying tray icons. No need to configure the JVM for
more memory. No grotesque orange Java splash screen. None of the problems of Java or the new plugin have and it runs great in my FF2 browser.
Java had media on the web in the palm of their hand in 2000. By bad design decision
after bad design decision, Java is now nearly a universal pariah. The panoramic
photograpy community universally hates Java and loves Flash.
And when people like me complain about the bone headed design decisions, then we're
10 years of my life learning how to be a better Java programmer just to earn the label of
"Bad Attitude" because I have to be an apologist for all the stupid design decisions and
when I complain to the only people who can fix the problems I face every day, I'm
Nice work guys.
The thing is, your job is on the line too and you just don't see the train coming. How
long is your Java development job going to last if Java is more and more avoided.
But I'm just being insulting now aren't I?
