Java "I recently gave a presentation at the Portland Java Users Group about Java FX. After talking to some of the fine members of PJUG I realize that there is a lot of confusion about JavaFX and JavaFX script. JavaFX Script is just one part of the larger JavaFX umbrella. In fact, you don't even have to use JavaFX Script to gain many of the benefits of JavaFX! This weblog posting is my attempt to clear up a few things and get you excited about the future of client Java. After reading it I hope you will come away with a better understanding of what JavaFX is and why we created it."

Sorry to be cynical, but...

From the article:

"I can't tell you any more at this time, but stay tuned. It's going to be great."

This is fine for a marketing piece, but when appealing to technical types this is not the most assured way of doing it. Because I am sure that HURD will be great as well, along with Duke Nukem Whenever.

Just to clarify, what's "going to be great" is the designer toolkit. JavaFX already exists and is great.
