Does anyone know why so much proprietary software is written in Java and free software not?
I don't worry so much about how much free software is written in Java already. Most of what I see today is C, and most people don't believe that's the ideal situation for the long term. Rather, we feel trapped in C.
I'm more interested in arguments as to why free software developers shouldn't pick up these wonderful new Java tools and start using Java. Are there strings to Sun that would be detrimental? A better alternative?
