Java's never gotten traction in the open source world. Definitely not anywhere on the desktop.

And it's pretty pitifully unstable under some circumstances on servers.

With some new exciting stuff coming out (like 'D') and the convenience of running true scriping languages I just don't see Java doing anything other than continue to lose interest...
