If you haven’t heard, Red Hat’s Michael Tiemann has responded to Sun exec Jonathan Schwartz’s blog entries that more or less talk trash toward Red Hat in a big way. It’s all pretty amusing, particularly because a response such as Tiemann’s likely plays right into Schwartz’s hands, and makes Red Hat look pretty childish, too. Schwartz is a smart guy; I’m guessing nothing goes into his blog without prior careful consideration. El Reg has an article/tribute/review of the whole thing here. Oh, and how the heck did we get on the topic of Java when JS’s original, er, flame was about Open Source vs. Open Standards?
