It is sad to see Oracle misusing, abusing and not even giving Java a second thought and shipped a Java 7 out of their doors knowing of a major bug in it.
The governance of Java in the hands of Oracles only causes JAVA TO FALL INTO SHAMBLES !!!
As a developer using mainly Java, I am sad to see how Java is treated. Oracle refused to give-in and heed the community and soon Java simply becomes more badly governed and more troubles would arise from it.
A good backup for any developer / programmer is to have a backup language in an event your main language simply sucks (Java for my case.... and I am now learning abit of other languages to pick a backup language to move over abit).
