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."

Java might not be a great desktop language but it has lot's of other areas where it really shines. At the company I work we use Java a lot on main frame computers, AS400 computers, web stuff.

and no .. I'm not a Java person. SQL Server developer.
