Heh! I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like Java.
I just don't see the point of it - it needs almost as
much work as C++, runs much slower and is full of
horrible inconsistencies and (IMHO) plain bad design.
For browser applets its a reasonable solution as a
platform but for Server work and as a language it
just seems weird the hype that's been built up.
The more I use Java the less I like it! Its the
first "class based" language I've ever seen and
confirms my belief that objects beat classes
