Java would be most useful as a language, rather than a platform - or perhaps even Groovy now.

I did start playing with a Java-as-a-language-not-a-platform implementation of the Java Language Specification (targetted at the Beeb, but'd work on RISC OS too), but never got beyond the stage of being able to run [link]

The Java language would provide a much easier mechanism for programming applications than any other language - however, it's almost certainly past the point now of being worth attracting new developers, and all the existing ones can obviously develop already! ;-)
