Java god James Gosling Leaves Oracle

I just read on the Sun Alumni alias that James Gosling left Oracle last week.
James officially resigned on April 2nd.

James stated on his blog:
"As to why I left, it's difficult to answer: just about anything I could say that would be accurate and honest would do more harm than good," 

Bill Joy once called James Gosling "the world's greatest living programmer", to which James quickly replied, "who is better dead? :-) "

Words can not express what a HUGE LOSS this is for Java and for Oracle....
