> I get really annoyed when people say "Java on the desktop is a non-starter" and similar things, because Java on the desktop is the ONLY reasonable way for a small team to build the software I'm interested in building and have it available cross-platform.

This app was developed by two of us working occasional nights and weekends for four years; parallel development in Obective-C and some other environment for Windows is so far off the radar screen it's not funny. Java was our only real option.
Couldn't agree more. I run a small company and we successfully
maintain a large java application (we're talking million+ lines of
code) on three main platforms (win, mac and linux). Our application is
for the enterprise, but is very much end-user rich client and wouldn't
be able to be done as a web client. I wouldn't see how we could do
what we do without java.
