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 write fairly small apps at work, and for one reason or another they have to run on both Linux and Windows, ideally without installation. Java web start is convenient for distribution, the windows PLaF looks perfectly decent, and everything generally works fine and is comfortable enough to write and use. Nothing exciting, but it's genuinely useful for me, and I don't see any sensible replacements.

That said, I would rather be writing Python for quick stuff and C for intense things. Oh well, java works. (I guess I should check the status of Jython again. Wonder if the netbeans integration is any good?)
