Java Oracle has made some decisions about Java: in order to release JDK 7 in the middle of next year, they have decided to change priorities and specifically, postpone three features: Jigsaw, Lambda and Coin.

No thanks to Java

I've tried learning Java, but the lack of properties (C# does this so awesomely), lack of lambdas, and to be frank, a lack of LINQ, makes it so I just can't stand it as a language.

C# is more like a staticly typed Python. Java is like C++ with a garbage collector.

I have to agree with this guy: http://day-to-day-stuff.blogspot.com/2007/12/demise-of-java-long-li...

Java is dieing, the JVM is still solid, but give it a few years, and Clojure, JRuby, Jython, and others will kill it off, IMO.
