Why did Google do that? Why not stay with the standardized Java and
get the benefits of all existing Java and Mobile Java apps?

Sometimes these software vendors can be really brain dead! They just
love proprietary or incompatible stuff. Java was designed to be
compatible on all platforms, now Android calls it "java", but it's not
compatible with Sun/Oracle's Java. This sounds just like what
Microsoft did years ago - luckily Sun put a stop to that.

I don't know much about Android, but just when I thought it sounded
great, I hear things like this. :-(
