"And in the IT world, most new developments are Java/.Net based, regardless of the geek community might feel about it. "

They can have all the java and C# they want as long as it stays behind the corporate firewall along with Visual Basic. Consumers want smooth 3D hardware acceleration and low latencies for audio apps and they won't get it from java. That's why Android had to spend so much time working and expanding the NDK/renderscript.
