Java "After an initial round of testing we've declared build 147 to be the first Release Candidate of JDK 7. There are only thirteen changes in this build. Over half of them are administrivial updates that don't affect the actual code; the remainder are true showstoppers, including several hard VM crashes and a JIT correctness bug identified by an Eclipse unit test. If no new showstopper issues are reported, and if JSR 336 and the component JSRs pass their Final Approval Ballots in the JCP, then this will be the GA build for release later this month per the schedule posted back in January."

Agreed.

The problem with many Java developers nowadays, or any developer for that matter, is that they do not know how to code.

I still remember the hard times to fit programs in 64KB segments.

Many people nowadays code without regard to program efficiency, thus leading to the general feeling that language X is slow.
