@Wolf480pl Fair enough. 😃 Perhaps I'm in a similar situation, just on the other side: I don't like Java because of around 20 years of experience with it, but I still use it; I'm not looking for a different job because other factors are more important than programming language used; and I'm not crusading for a different programming language at the company because so much depends on it, for us. So I tag along, grudgingly. But all the code I write for myself uses no Java.

Seeing the calls to switch to Safari or Firefox from Chrome (hey, have I told you about Odysseus?) I want to say once again that we should be developing new browser engines to fight the collapse in browser divirsity! We need the web to simplify!
