Objective C never caught on, period. I mean when Ada and Pascal are kicking your ass in terms of number of developers you know your language is in trouble.

Red Hat Hit With Patent Suit Over JBoss

kjj Deja Vu all over again? (201 comments)

Didn't Red Hat put this behind them with this settlement? http://www.press.redhat.com/2008/07/15/a-readers-guide-to-the-firestar-settlement/

What is the good of making a settlement like this that was suppose to protect everybody when the next troll comes along? Red Hat should have not just given in and settled the previous case, because now every other joker with a patent related to ORM will come after them.

Northeastern University Sues Google Over Patent

kjj Re:University with Patents? (159 comments)

Even if it was true that all research at public schools must be made available to the public, this school is not a public school at all, it is a private school. Which means that most of the funding for the schools operation comes from tuition and donations by the alumni, not state or federal aid. Some private schools reject all state and federal funding because they do not which to be bound by rules concerning things like how they administer the school, choice of curriculum or what criteria they use for admitting students. In other words private schools are allowed to operate much more like private corporations than public schools. Some technical institutes are corporate run entities that are run not just with the mission to educate people but also to make money doing it.
