January 27th will be the fourth anniversary of Oracle’s takeover of Sun Microsystems. From the outset, many were dubious over the suitability of the former-software only company to handle Java. And, with subsequent allegations of lack of support for open source and poor handling of legacy issues continuing to crop up as regularly as NSA scare stories, there’s been no shortage of critique in the intervening years. Among these indignant voices, one of the most significant has been that of Java founder James Gosling (aka the Java father) - and he’s been at it again this week. Ahead of the upcoming milestone date, InfoWorld had Gosling deliver a school teacher style report of Oracle’s treatment of the software he created to date.
