quote: Google, on the other hand, will try to establish that Sun Microsystems knew about and verbally permitted its unlicensed use of Java.
quote: This isn't correct. Sun released Java under the GNU General Purpose Licence 2.0.As I understand it, GPL 2.0 means anyone can use any GPL 2.0 software, and modify it as well, write programs with it, distribute it, whatever, all for free, but what they pass on has to also be distributed with the GPL 2.0 licence. This means if you or I or Google write something with Java code, and then distribute it under GPL 2.0 requirements, the code is automatically licenced.
quote: As I see this, Oracle do have a case: Google infringed upon the Sun licence.
quote: I have no idea who will win this case or what the legal and technical details really mean but
quote: Well then you should shut up if you don't know what you are talking about.Oh wait you didn't and of course post mindless dribble about how Google didn't do something.
quote: Thinking? Says the mindless Apple Troll. LOL
quote: Try to calm down, take a deep breath and - and this is going to be a novel experience - try stringing together an actual coherent comment on the matter at hand.
quote: You've got that wrong, my friend. It's Apple that whine after a lawsuit victory.
quote: Applications are usually developed in the Java programming language using the Android Software Development Kit, but other development tools are available.Libraries written in C and other languages can be compiled to ARM or x86 native code and installed using the Android Native Development Kit.
quote: I'll stop calling it crapdroid the moment I see it dropping Java crap and starting to behave like a real quality (fast) OS
quote: ...even though the RIM themselves have dropped this Sun abomination joke from BB10 and Playbook.
quote: Java has no place on mobile devices and it will follow the extinction path of mobile Flash, it's just the same low quality molasses slow crap as mobile Flash. Watch it being pwned speed and efficiency wise by iOS, WP and QNX in fuiture releases.
