Heh. Well, I know people who are learning Java, people who are teaching
Java, and people who are talking about Java. I've yet to find anyone who has
actually built anything with Java, aside from the personal toy-project stuff
we all do to evaluate new technology.

But it would be nice to be able to tell clients "yes, we can communicate
with Java if you ever decide to use it for something". Its too bad Sun is so
intent on maintaining a closed system.
