"Java is largely confined to programs for people who are already obliged (by corporate diktat?) to use it, or write it."

Eclipse 1310322
OpenOffice 210424
ecj 181576
Xalan 158309
Ant 102443
Xerces 97919
KDE Bindings 66933
ANTLR 48279
GNU-Crypto 48083
libgtk-java 34358

How many of these are useful to somebody not already obliged to run Java, for being obliged to write it? Sure, Sun shoehorned the stuff into OO.o, but that's corporate diktat too.
