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."

Wow, being a hard core eclipse developer for so long, I finally decided to try netbeans, to see just how easy it is to build a swing app.

I am very impressed! Netbeans is very zippy (better the Eclipse), and there Design view puts me in mind of visual basic, in that it's really simple to put a form together, and get it lined up nicely.

For my next intRAnet application, I'll definitely be using NetBeans with Swing!
