Perception is Reality

September 9, 2010 11:08:36.538

Interesting times in software development - the Oracle suit against Google is bringing things like this up:

I have assumed that Oracle's Java licensing push is going to kill off Java. I had always thought that Java was free to use and that was part of the appeal. If that is not true, then we need to find something that is free to use.

I saw that float by in my Facebook news feed. Now, what's the reality in terms of Java and usage? I don't know, I haven't paid much attention to the suit. However, how the suit is being perceived is possibly more important - it will impact the choices shops make when they decide to start new projects. The longer that suit drags on, the more it will make some people wonder, I think.
