.NET (dotGNU too) Microsoft is leaving Java in the dust, but the company still has room to grow in the developer arena, a key executive said. Speaking at the Microsoft FAM (Financial Analyst Meeting) on July 27 in Redmond, Wash., Bob Muglia, Microsoft's senior vice president of Server and Tools business, said Microsoft's .Net platform has outpaced Java, particularly the Java Enterprise Edition, over the past five years to become the development platform of choice for enterprise development.

I believe operator overloading was specifically avoided in Java because it's simply bad style, in most situations, and even when it's not it's often abused.

But then you start using BigInteger or BigDecimal and realize that non-operator overloading is bad style. Bad style and abuse is indicative of bad developers, not operator overloading.
