You have a point, but my point is, Java already has quite a bit of traction on the desktop, and Gnome is in a position to join in

It's the other way around. Gnome already has quite a bit of traction on the desktop, and "Java" is in a position to join in. Well, not really. Sun has never cared about the Unix desktop as witnessed by their complete ignorance over everything not Swing-based.

You can stop pointing out Swing apps as they are completely pointless to anything that would ever be accepted in a DE distribution.

I'm just pointing out the potential that has already proven to exist for implementing large, complex Java desktop apps.

Yes, everything has "potential", but desktop Java is always on the verge of being the comeback kid.
