The following has been making the rounds. In it James Gosling flames a deserving troll, them expounds on his thoughts on OS X/Java.

When the authorization box pops up, use 'archives' and 'archives'.
I just wish he would have proof-read his reply before sending it off. His last sentence would have had much more impact without the typo.
enjoy,

Cool enough to quote directly, don't you think bear? Here it is, straight from "jag"'s post:


I use the MAC because it's a great platform. One of the nice things about developing in Java on the MAC is that you get to develop on a lovely machine, but you don't cut yourself off from deploying on other platforms. It's a fast and easy platform to develop on. Rock solid. I never reboot my machine... Really! Opening and closing the lid on a Powerbook actually works. The machine is up and running instantly when you open it up. No viruses. Great UI. All the Java tools work here: NetBeans and JEdit are the ones I use most. I tend to think of OSX and Linux with QA and Taste.



You've made my day: I've been using the same code editor as James Gosling.
