"Microsoft just announced a goofy little plan called "JUMP" or
Java User Migration Plan. Although not directed specifically at
users but at developers, Microsoft hopes to entice and/or force
people to "jump" from Java to .NET, thus removing Java as a
permanent alternative to Microsoft platforms."
"Surprisingly, there has been little or no organized response
from the Java development community or anyone else. But not to
fear, I have the perfect response in mind: WUMP."
"Windows User Migration Plan or WUMP would do the opposite of
MS-JUMP. It would be a strategic migration scheme to help .NET
captives off of MS proprietary systems and to migrate up to Java,
or other MS-free platforms. For every tool, every path, and every
kit that Microsoft releases, a corresponding reverse-kit should be
developed and released by Java developers and others."
"For every developer whose customers are told they might want to
jump to .NET, there should be a .NET developer whose customers hear
the siren call to wump to Java or whatever."
