I used to feel this way as well.

But then we needed tools for Nebula and I learned about Eclipse 
(http://www.eclipse.org/) and saw that it was a great framework that 
gave us a lot to build on.

So, objectively, I've come to see a lot of value in Java and have even 
come to like it some.  It is definitely getting us further in creating 
tools than any alternative that I had seen, largely due to the excellent 
work by the Eclipse teams.  More on that some other day.

Now, if only I could get past this UnsatisfiedLinkError with some JNI 
stuff that appears to be a JVM bug...
