Question: Do you care to speculate as to how long the Java language will be around?

Answer : I suspect that the Java language will be good for another 20 to 30 years if we manage its evolution carefully. But I also expect that new research ideas will emerge and slowly gain acceptance and, at some point, we'll want a new synthesis that will create a great new simple language. And of course we'll want to make sure that great new language runs on the Java Platform!
