I was using Oracle in the mid-1980s, and came to hate the company by the early 90s. I expect that Java will fork and the Oracle/Sun part of it will die. Not tomorrow, but over the next few years.

Which is mostly OK with me, as Java is old, its time for a newer, better language. Preferably one very far away from Oracle.

Java-the-language is not as cool and shiny as it used to be, but the JVM is still a great platform, which is used by many newer languages such as Scala, JRuby, Groovy etc. I wouldn't want the JVM to go away.

I completely agree. The JVM is proven, solid, fast, and a great platform for all sorts of next generation languages.
