On August 29, 1997, Java became mainstream. In a panic, Microsoft tried
to embrace, extend and exterminate the system, prompting Sun to
retaliate with a lawsuit, knowing that Microsoft's counterattack would
eliminate all its main competitors in the U.S. This initiates an
indeterminately long period of new language development culminating in a
battle against corporate monopoly, which gained ever-increasing
capabilities of FUD.
