Is Sun moving in the Ruby direction?

As per Charles Oliver Nutter , two core JRuby developers, Charles himself and Thomas Enebo, will become employees at Sun Microsystems this month.

To me, this is a clear indication that Sun Microsystems is seriously evaluating where to go with Java:

1. Keep adding new features to Java, which in my opinion is wrong .

2. Create a new language using JVM as a foundation, which in my opinion is right .

3. All of the above

Let ‘s keep an eye on Charles Oliver Nutter ‘s blog, but do not expect too much of a leakage there – he is now Sun ‘s employee. Two talented software developers standing on the shoulders of the super powerful marketing machine is a win-win situation for everybody.

Good luck Charles and Thomas!
