Implying swing support would have mattered at all is laughable, given Java's complete failure story on the desktop (ironically Eclipse and derivatives is probably the most used GUI java app righ now, and as you pointed out is does not use swing). Swing is useless server-side, and IIRC Google stole SUN's mobile lunch without bothering with it either.
