It is our pleasure to bring you a very special Basement Coders podcast live from San Francisco. We were given the opportunity to sit down with James Gosling, creator of Java. We do apologize for the background noise on this one, it was taped gorilla style at a coffee shop in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art during a busy lunch hour. But if you can filter out the noise you won't be disappointed as you'll get to learn some interesting facts about James, where he grew up, how is career took Shape and how Java was born. We also find out what James is up to these days and his thoughts on the current state of Java.

Gosling on IBM: “They’d do anything they could to screw Sun over. I mean, they didn’t name Eclipse casually.”
That’s a great quote!

Gosling on Oracle: “I don’t know how to say it other than to say they [Oracle] were lying, duplicitous s***s…Oracle is kind of a funny company because they take glory in that. They have no issues with being categorized that way. Some of their PR people might get a little uncomfortable with it, but up at the top, they deeply, deeply don’t give a s**t.”,

Thats exactly why Google should invest in PostgreSQL, oracle needs a dent in their back.

It's why Google should settle the lawsuit by giving Oracle a few million, and taking Java off Oracle's hands. Oracle keeps the Sun hardware, Google gets Java. Or should I say Gava.

Good idea, they should rename their Java to Gava and declare that they have abandoned Java.
