Java The IcedTea project provides a harness to build the source code from OpenJDK using Free Software build tools and provides replacements libraries for the binary plugs with code from the GNU Classpath project. This release adds the "Zero-assembler" port which will allow IcedTea to run with zero (ok, minimal) porting effort on any GNU/Linux architecture that has a gcc and libffi port available. JNLP support has been added through the addition of NetX, which makes a lot of java webstart applications work out of the box. Check out the screenshots. Gary Benson will give a talk about the zero-assembler port at FOSDEM during the free Java developer meeting where GNU Classpath, OpenJDK and many other Free Java projects come together to plan the future of Free Java on GNU/Linux.

i have been working with real life projects in the last 5 years all involved with java in server and client side (mostly server tough) i never had any serious problem with Sun's java. we used different operating systems, different IDE's, deployed in various operating systems. i am not saying it was without issues, but no show stoppers. claiming somebody as liar is very condescending, because i hate liars. Maybe you can be nice to explain one of your issues with Java instead.
Also, i follow the market trend for developer resources, i know for a fact that Java is still the most used and sought technology.
