Sun tries again with consumer-flavored Java | CNET News.com

Wow, my colleague RMH scores quotes in the WSJ, NYT, and CNet on the same day -- impressive.  I look forward to having a debate with him about the possibility that the way to make Java more successful may be to use a different language :)... 

Java has a rich "ecosystem" of products and vendors but its use for front-end design has been stymied by compatibility and performance problems, said Richard Monson-Haefel, an analyst at the Burton Group.

"It should be the sweet spot for Java. It's kind of tragic that Sun screwed up so badly with the applet performance and browser incompatibility in the late 1990s," he said. "JavaFX Script has an opportunity to redeem themselves."
