But as good as Larry's creation, Perl, was, it couldn't do everything, so God created Scott. Scott announced Java, and this was big news. Now Java really pissed Bill off, because Bill also created Blackbird, and Java killed Blackbird(1). This was bad because killing Blackbird also meant killing the Microsoft Network. And many rejoiced over that, but that, too, is another story.

And God realized he had put Bill down too far. So then God made it so that Marc's Netscape and Mosaic could run on Windows. We already know that Bill had to licence Java from Scott. We know that Bill missed the boat for not beating Tim to the punch on the World Wide Web. The last straw was for God to make it possible for Larry's Perl to run on Bill's Windows.
...but note, I didn't click any of the explanatory links ... my mind has already been made up on a lot of those ;^)=
