[UPHPU] OOP continued

As for Java, I think it's great the apps are objects. That's how it should 
be. That is a fundamental design flaw with many languages is namespace 
conflict, if you have two apps running at the same time they need a brick 
wall between them because one's main can't interfere with the others main 
namespace. It's a design flaw.

Now as for people hating Java, I think that's mostly due to the strict 
nature of it. After all, it's a statically typed, compiled language, and the 
specs leave little to be implied.  I personally don't use Java and was never 
educated in it, I majored in Business.
