Except the reality is NOT the opposite. Swing is one of the most powerful GUI toolkits ever created.

Swing has actually been quite successful for internal applications, and on many new "non general purpose" applications. There is a lot of scientific and engineering software written with Swing that is being used inside various corporations. In addition, a lot of internal GUI database front ends and such in corporations use Swing.
And of course, on the desktop, there are some pretty successful Swing apps out there. ThinkFree Office and Limewire probably being the best known examples.
