Oracle, which purchased Sun recently, was very interested in buying the rights to the Java language. So now they are defending their purchased rights by suing Boogle:


A number of Linux and BSD developers have been skeptial about the mono project, which provides a platform for development using Microsoft's C++ language, but people haven't worried a lot about Java, almost forgetting that it belonged to Sun, its corporate creator.

Now it's time to worry.

  It's completely normal that you lose data on "Windows" platforms.
  That's why you have a Linux/BSD/UNIX server for backups.
