Java "Although the .NET vs. Java war is basically over for control of the Windows desktop, where .NET is sure to become the managed language of choice for new Windows desktop applications, there is a new battle brewing. That battle is for the Linux desktop. Now that Java has been open sourced under the GPL, even the most strict of the 'free software only' distributions can start bundling it and integrating it into their Linux distributions out of the box."

what the hell does this have to do with Java as a language or platform?
However all of this is possible in matisse.


Again, you seem to suffer from osnews-a-litus - the affliction of replying to posts with out actually reading the bloody thing.

I said that Java as a language was complex and over engineered - and gave an example of how its gotten to the point that you can't do something as basic as assigning code to widgets.

Except for the obvious that your claims are bogus. Kids in programming 101 can put together an app in Java. Perhaps you need to get some training ;)
