markee174: "Java is used a lot less in Applets on the web now. Javascript in a broswer would be far more useful."

Indeed, I was careful to say that Java [in a browser] is something *people* claim is lacking.

Personally, I think Java on the desktop is much more important. People developing J2EE applications don't need anything on a platform above and beyond Java and a compiler: whatever's nicest to work in is best.

jess: yes, your analysis is spot-on.
