Sun has screwed up the licensing of Java from the start. Their deal with
Microsoft early on made that clear to me.
I prefer to use just about any other tool (except, of course, for
JSP/.NET, etc). Python, Perl, ... any other tool will do the jobs I need
done and I can avoid the sluggishness of Java, the licensing
ambiguities, and the dependence on a company that is *not* a software
company to begin with!

None. Just a user.
