I guess I don't read /. much anymore, since there are no ++ and -- buttons by each node ;). That said, I did go and have a look at the Damian thread. I uncovered the following jewel:

One of the reasons for my irrational hatred of all things java is that a lot of people involved with it seem to think that java is a skill. It's not, it's knowledge. In my last company, we did a lot of programming with C and C++ and various technologies such as RPC, Corba, COM etc etc. and yet at least two people resigned because they couldn't put the magic j word on their resume. Careerwise at the time (pre dot bomb) they were right. You could have 10 years of C coding experience, a signed certificate from Donald Knuth that you were the top programmer of all time and you still couldn't get a job in a .com startup because you didn't know java yet.

My sentiments exactly.
