Java Development Begins in Earnest: Computer History Museum | This Day in History: May 23 1994

And, real soon now, "write once, run anywhere" is going to come to fruition

"Sun Microsystems Inc. formally announced its new programs, Java and HotJava at the SunWorld '95 convention. Java was described as a programming language that, combined with the HotJava World Wide Web browser, offered the best universal operating system to the online community. The concept behind the programs was to design a programming language whose applications would be available to a user with any kind of operating system, eliminating the problems of translation between Macintoshes, IBM-compatible computers, and Unix machines."
(But apparently it was 1995, not 1994)
