From Compsci.ca Wiki
Java is a programming language designed for boring people who aren't smart enough to handle C.
^^I wonder who wrote that? *rolls eyes* Don't be discouraged. Where's rizzix in this? Java is a nice, clean language, and is very portable. Also very good for learning Object Oriented programming styles. Java has many good uses and is my favourite language by and far. There's also a lot of other languages that use the java libraries like Scala, Nice, Jaskell, and Groovy.
