And so Infoworld´s Paul Krill, who lurks on this list, used this thread to
write this FUD piece.,1

I guess there´s an unwritten rule in IT journalism these days where one if
barred from saying anything positive about Java and OpenJDK these days that
doesn´t fit the "Google will rule the world, Oracle and Java, bad" myopic
point of view.

Surely reads like a mix of wishful thinking and self-fulfilling prophecy...
discourage anyone even toying with the idea from actually doing it...
