Interviews: Ask James Gosling About Java and Ocean Exploring Robots 87

James Gosling is probably best known for creating the Java programming language while working at Sun Microsystems. Currently, he is the chief software architect at Liquid Robotics. Among other projects, Liquid Robotics makes the Wave Glider, an autonomous, environmentally powered marine robot. James has agreed to take a little time from the oceangoing robots and answer any questions you have. As usual, ask as many as you'd like, but please, one question per post.

    You're thrown into a gladiatorial ring. An audience of thousands watches your every move, eager for blood. Across the ring, Richard Stallman advances toward you, katana poised to attack. To your left you see a rack full of medieval weapons.

    What weapon do you choose? Whose blood will be spilled upon the sand?

    Your post was highly insightful and on-topic, until you got to the part where you asked more than one question in a single post.
