@SpankyWorks actually it's:
2008: oh great, another Java app
@animeirl @SpankyWorks You hate Java?
Java is a beautiful programming language compared to JS. It's so easy to reason about. You don't have to remember all the weird special-case behaviors of == and ===. It throws exceptions when something goes wrong, so you know where it went wrong. It has types. Statically checked. It's like... nothing fancy but everything you would expect from a programming language.
@animeirl @Wolf480pl @SpankyWorks server side Java is incredibly popular (maybe the most common server side language) . Android is a Java runtime environment that seems to present a pretty good UX too.
Everybody hates Java Applets and Swing, but the language isn't only those decades-old monstrosities.
