Is the (albeit misleading) person we're looking for famous in the computer field?

Is it the case that something has been named after him, and this is the word we are looking for?

Is it the case that something has been named after him, and this is the word we are looking for? No, it's just a coincidence that that person has the same name as the word you're looking for - that's why I said "may be very misleading" in my last post.

Circuit? Silicon? code? switch? transformer? No to all. Try to find more details, there is no way to guess like this.

Does the term directly relate java's compatibility with other software in some way? Is it something java is good at (or supposed to be good at?).
Or does it refer to an incompatibility problem?

Sorry Dref, but I don't know much about java either. I always thought it was a strong coffee!

Is this word used at all in the web document I cited a few posts up? I say yes, but watch out, it's a pure coincidence and doesn't ever refer to it's real meaning.
