There's more software under Free Software compatible licenses in Java than in any other languages except C and C++. Such software, along with Java software under all kinds of other licenses, is used on the majority of Linux systems.
Just because you don't like to use it doesn't mean it has no relevance. Nor does it mean you can write off everyone who uses it (who greatly outnumber you and those with similar hostile attitudes) as corporate drones. You have no right to demand that subjects relevant to them not receive coverage from LWN. You most definitely have no right to dictate how developers spend their time and efforts.
