Java, as far as I can tell, has peaked and is declining in use. To the
extent that there ever was a "mass defection" from C++ to Java, I
think it was driven more by dot.com madness and marketing dweebs then
by any real virtue inherent in Java.

 Reports of C++'s death is _greatly_ exagerated.

Java - all the hype you can handle -and beans too!

Especially with the advent of unified objects in Python 2.2, Python is
a _far_ better language then Java.
