I find Java useful on the desktop and wouldn't call it useless. I use limewire daily and it runs on Java. I download all my bittorents using the excellent azureus UI. I like the new direction of Java UI's where they are using the native toolkits instead of Swing. Azureus and Eclipe are good examples of this UI approach.
