how is, for example, Kotlin better than Java in any practical get-the-project-done sense, other than Oracle doesn't own it (which may be reason enough.

That would be my answer, yes. Any move away from Oracle is 'right' Smile | :)

For most solutions (there's that dang most again!), I think there are a load of right answers. You can write your basic "screens over data" app in just about anything - and that's 'right'. There are some 'wrong' answers though. So, the canard is a first approximation of the truth, IMO.

When people swing it around to justify today's hot language over yesterday's, they're wrong. So, I guess we agree there?
