.NET (dotGNU too) Microsoft is leaving Java in the dust, but the company still has room to grow in the developer arena, a key executive said. Speaking at the Microsoft FAM (Financial Analyst Meeting) on July 27 in Redmond, Wash., Bob Muglia, Microsoft's senior vice president of Server and Tools business, said Microsoft's .Net platform has outpaced Java, particularly the Java Enterprise Edition, over the past five years to become the development platform of choice for enterprise development.

Yes SWING is ugly but you've got one good option...SWT. SUN would win the hearts of developers if they made java webstart a little easier to deploy.

Swing is a beautifully engineered library, from an API perspective. Apple made Swing look great on Mac OS X. Surely, if Apple can do it, Sun should be able to make it look great seeing as they spend far more resources on Java than Apple does.
