Java In the midst of the dual events Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne (overshadowed, of course, by the iPhone event) Oracle took a number of steps that show that they still care about making a go of Java on the desktop.

Why is Java 'wrong' on the desktop?

The vast majority of Windows apps are written with .Net, which is basically the same type of system as Java (memory managed byte code runs in a jit'ed env).

So, why is .Net great for desktop apps, but Java is considered bad?

Personally, the app I use 90% of the time is Eclipse (for C++/Python/Fortran) and I think its fantastic.
