From my perspective, Java is a lot like computer science masturbation.
Rather than trust an electrical engineer to design a machine, they
invented their own. Now every program requires a many dozen megabyte
library to run.

All for the benefit of a few features like cross-platform after
compilation, and garbage collection. These are all features that have
been solved in the past, and without such bloat and restrictions.
