Java "Although the .NET vs. Java war is basically over for control of the Windows desktop, where .NET is sure to become the managed language of choice for new Windows desktop applications, there is a new battle brewing. That battle is for the Linux desktop. Now that Java has been open sourced under the GPL, even the most strict of the 'free software only' distributions can start bundling it and integrating it into their Linux distributions out of the box."

I'll give them 2 years; like I said last year, I'll give them to the end of 2008 to turn Solaris around; if it is still the same ugly mess along with Java, then I'll be better off hoping for mono to improve along with FreeBSD.

As usual, you persist in making unprovable claims about Solaris such as "ugly mess." If you were willing to list specific, valid, verifiable, and undeniable issues that can prove that Solaris is an "ugly mess" that are based on fact and not on anecdotal evidence (such as why your wireless or specific laptop doesn't work), I might believe you.
