I started writing Java based applications for Amateur Radio more than 10 years ago now. I've spent some time on the various mailing lists, trying to get people interested in using Java as the mechanism to get portability across all the more popular desktop environments.
There seems to be quite a reluctance to use Java, and so we have a lot of other languages in use today, most with some level of portability due to native libraries, but many used in more complex environments such as WINE on Linux.
How many people here are doing any software development, and how many of you find value in using Java?
