>>one better. Java was an embedded systems language, and inferno is just way

Java isn't even a good `embedded systems' language: it provides too little
control over space and time requirements. it is hard to analyse and hard to check.
the Java Language Specification is 765 pages; dense in every sense.
they clearly learnt nothing from the Ada history.
what Java certainly does provide is a profusion of APIs, suggesting
a remarkable inability to search for abstractions.
