Assaf Arkin:

One of my pet peeves about Java is [t]he choice to separate itself and live in a bubble, isolated from the operating system.

One of these days, in the spirit of "Alice in Wonderland", I'm going to write a childrens book about the two worlds of Sea-land (C-land) and Javum (JVM).

Maybe you can just write a sequel to Steve Yegge's wonderfully written story "The Kingdom of Nouns". His story already explores the fabled kingdoms of Javaland and it's rivals C-land, JavaScript-land, Perl-land and Ruby-land. Just to be complete he even mentions far-away rarely visited kingdoms of Haskellia, Ocamlica, and Schemeria. http://steve-yegge.blogspot.com/2006/03/execution-in-kingdom-of-nouns.html
