@polychrome remember when the name JavaScript was chosen because it was intended to be a way to extend Java and so Sun promoted it as

Β· Web Β· 1 Β· 0 Β· 1

@espectalll I thought it was chosen because Netscape thought it'll sell better with Java being super hot at the time.

@ilovecomputers @polychrome imagine if people told Sun now that JS was going to eat up the whole Java business and spawn even more rivalry (Electron, WebAssembly)

@ilovecomputers @polychrome also like

imagine telling them about Oracle

ewwwwwwwwwwwwww

@fence @polychrome notice as well how it was intended to be used for servers from the start
