I think Sun employees wrote and recorded that song. Anyone recall who? A verse near the end states: "Nobody can tell you what the future may bring...". Well, that was 8 years ago. Check this out!

As Java technology enters its 10th year, the Java Brand is a one of the most powerful technology brands on the planet. You'll see it on your Java powered mobile phone from Sony Ericcson, Motorola, etc or your Palm PDA, on a variety of new PCs from the factory, built into various printers from Ricoh, baked into mobile games, and a part of slew of websites from our partners like Borland, Oracle, and others. Java technology is on over 2 Billion devices and counting!

The Facts
In our most recent study we found that 86% of consumers and 100% of developers and IT recognize the Java brand. In addition we have seen the association of Java and Sun grow by 15% year over year. Over 80% of Developers and IT professionals know that Java comes from Sun. In addition 1 in 3 consumers will buy a product with the Java brand over a comparable product, this is up from 1 in 5 just a year ago.  Java.com just blew past 10 Million visitors per month, which is more visitors than Nintendo.com, Wired.com, Playstation.com, Time.com, Businessweek.com, and many others.
