How about OpenOffice.org? If Java helps them develop more features for it faster, and if they can run with gcj (and apparently they can, given what Red Hat is saying about FC4), more power to them!
Not to mention all the Apache projects that use Java. And a few games, like JRisk (no Linux native Risk game compares).
Seriously, I don't understand the aversion to Java. It really is a more productive language than C++. It likely has fewer potential patent problems than Mono. A solid native Linux Java compiler like GCJ can *only* be a good thing for Free Software.
