I guess sometimes I need to be knocked really hard ;-/. But it works both 
ways - I cannot imagine what should Java-the-language have to make me 
interested again. Java-the-virtual-machine is still interesting a little, 
but not as much as few years ago. Languages that I like (Python is one of 
them) are already multiplatform, so running Jython is reserved to few very 
special cases (those cases may be important and happening quite often to 
other people but I intend to avoid them personally). Same for other 
languages implemented over JVM, like Scheme or Common Lisp.

Of course, just my opinion.
