Well, then, keep praising Java (actually, I like it too, it's just that
there's too much unused potential in there...) and let others live too...
After all, if .NET isn't a Java killer, it isn't that good and everything,
you have nothing to worry about, right? And, to get back to the initial
issue: I don't like Swing and I think they'll need another re-work in order
to make it work decently...
