Java Oracle has made some decisions about Java: in order to release JDK 7 in the middle of next year, they have decided to change priorities and specifically, postpone three features: Jigsaw, Lambda and Coin.

I don't like this stupid trend of adding language features... It does more harm than good.

Java 1.4 was perfect: simple, elegant, legible. It was a kind of C for OOP.

Then SUN ruined it with generics and annotations. It's impossible to read the code, It sucks. What a shame.

Now, Java is just another abortion like C++. No, It's better than C++... but even Brainfuck is better than C++.

Hey, what about foreach (for stuff: listofstuff)? That alone was worth the upgrade ;)

You can already do foreach in Java..

EDIT: Whoops misread your comment. Yes being able to do foreach in java makes it pretty simple. Also I like generics.

I don't know about you but I very much like generics in c#, they make code much more readable. I don't know how java does it, but if they do make code unreadable then they're doing it wrong..
