LinuxProgramming.com: Editor's Comment: Whither Java, the Sequel

I have to admit, when I posted my original "Whither Java?" editorial (on both LinuxProgramming.com and LinuxToday) asking why Java isn't more popular than it is on Linux, I didn't expect to get this much detailed feedback and of this quality. As they say in the neighborhood where I grew up, "All youse guys done good." (This works much better if you say it with a comically overblown New York accent that makes you sound like a rejected extra from The Sopranos.)

In fact, because the feedback was so good, I thought it would be worthwhile getting an official response from Sun. I checked with one of my contacts there, David Harrah, who's agreed to help facilitate this. To speed up the process I volunteered to summarize the comments, and I've chosen this coming Sunday, February 25th at 10PM US east coast time, as the deadline.

So, this is your "last call". If you have something you want to add the conversation we're about to open up with Sun, it's time to belly up to the keyboard. You can post your comments as talkbacks to either this article or the original, which is the first link below.
