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."

"Try assigning some widgets to a form, double clicking, assigning code and compiling - you can't do that with Java; thats how bloody painful Java is in its current form. Little or none have been to make Java a RAD tool, its still overly complex and slow. "

what the hell does this have to do with Java as a language or platform?
However all of this is possible in matisse.
