Java is the new Bash?

Shock! Dilbert programs in Java!

Since that link probably won’t survive the test of time, today’s Dilbert cartoon has Dilbert coding an incompetent co-worker job in Java. This is (hopefully) a reference to the original line: “I will replace you with a shell script. A very short shell script.“. Amusing how this translates into Java in Dilbert: –

  • Java is the language of choice for replacing incompetent people
  • Even an incompetent person’s competent funcations can’t be coded in a short app

Damnation by slight praise, then?
