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."

And here is a tip for kaiwai : Please engage brain before typing a reply.

JIT still results in the delay between excution and the result - the result is a sluggish gui no matter how the problems are coded around.

JIT occurs at startup, not everytime you click on a control. .NET, Mono, and Java all use JIT.

I doubt it, I've used 5.0 and its just as bad as previous versions
I find your claims hard to believe. Anyone who can use VB 6 can put together a GUI with netbeans 5.0.
