I'm only going to recall a completely true sentence by Bill Snyder:
"Java is becoming the new Cobol"
Java, the oldest new programming language around, is falling out of favor with developers. When it comes to developing
the increasingly common rich Internet applications, Java is losing ground to Ruby on Rails, PHP, AJAX and other cool new
languages. And there are even reports that Microsoft’s .Net, of all things, is pushing Java out of the enterprise. Makes you wonder
whether Sun was smart to change its stock-ticker code to JAVA last summer
