.NET (dotGNU too) "Four short years ago, Microsoft unveiled its new framework/engine for programming and running applications in a virtual environment, and the world was stunned. Microsoft had introduced a run-time environment that was for the first time a true 'write once, run everywhere' implementation, but that was far from being the end. With .NET 3.0 on the loom, NeoSmart Technologies takes a look at how far .NET has come and just how long it can keep going."

As far as I know, there are tons of good to go high performance Swing apps out there in many enterprise companies including big ones like IBM, Oracle and BusinessObject....o well...who cares if you don't look around.

Yeah sure, like Oracle Tools (me wonders why everybody prefers Toad), like IBM Internal Tools, like IBM Raid Configuration Tools (which really su**). On the other hand, maybe that's why Business Objects Analytical, IBM Tivoli, IBM Lena, etc... are all written in C++ and not Java; and then when a new version -ported to Java- comes, all the people complain that it really suc**.

So.... I don't look around; I worked with Oracle and its beautiful tools, worked For IBM in 1998 and then worked with a company who made extensive use of BusinessObjects for Direct Marketing customer segmentation and analytical purposes...

But I don't look around. Keep comparing Java Front end with .NET for Windows... sure.
