hmmmm interesting

I heard once that they were deciding on what to call it. They were at a coffee shop drinking coffee, and somehow they thought of naming it java, which is another word for coffee.

did you really have to create an account to post the exact same link someone else already posted 4 years ago?

That article is kind of amusing; everyone graciously refraining from taking credit except for the marketing woman who is obviously lying since three other accounts contradict her story.

I thought the Java language was called Java because the people who programed Java ate/drunk a lot of Java to stay awake while programming. I will have to try that some day.
