Predictions for Java (30 - October - 97)
I think Java is the best way of writing
active web servers right now, and that active
web servers are the way to go for many applications.

I believe very much in Java thin clients for
many computer users, but not all. Office suites
written in Java will play an important role in
enterprise computing, but will take some time
to mature.

The best thing about Java is that you can use
the same language to do very different things,
from embedded systems to large-scale network
