I have been taking a lot of time to learn Java. I’ve heard a lot of positive and a lot of negative press about it. It seems that most of the negative comes from those who haven’t used it much. I’m not sure about it myself yet, but it’s growing on me. Besides the geeky anti-MS-ness about it, it seems to be a well-designed language. I mean, it seems it was planned, rather than built upon and extended beyond what it was ever intended to be, as were some other languages. It uses the object-oriented concept seriously and completely, unlike C++.

It’s also a serious portion of the software market these days, and well worth knowing for the sake of being informed.
