Python, Tcl and komodo (from ActiveState.com) do everything better *for me* (and many others), or do the same that Java does with less pain !

How much simpler can you get than Netbeans 5 and Studio Creator 2?


And it's faster than Java.

Don't mean to be rude, but this isn't slashdot, you'll need to provide a link to some numbers.
Considering that JDK 5 is competitive with C++ (and thrashes mono), I seriously doubt your claims:
