This may have already been mentioned, but remember when Scott McNealy's sun brought that suite against ms in the 90's because the ms java implementation had support for a 2 button mouse or some such nonsense. That's why they created J++. I remember him specifically saying on tv that they "set a legal trap" for ms to step in. People forget things to quickly.
Also for a company that is suppose to be as smart as google, they should have just used their platform (droid) as a vehicle to bring the industry further past java instead of letting it fester some more.
