Eric Sink on Java

I did try to really jump into Java, really I did. I tried to get into it with J++, I get around JavaScript fairly easily and I still like it as a concept. But I’ve never seen a “good-looking” Java application – they usually look so (I can’t even find the right word, drab, blah, amateur, I dunno) – but I do appreciate the language and what it means.

As it turns out, so does Eric – his post Java and Tiger Woods is a must-read.

  1. Hey – you need javascript to do AJAX apps – which I do on occasion.

    But the main point is that Java as a language, while popular, seems to be at that “awkward” age where it just doesn’t do anything (for me, at least) that seems visually cool or aweinspiring.

    Now I have seen some cool web-based apps that do network graphing, etc – but I find the Web 2.0 apps (Basecamp, Writely , etc) look better than most Java applications.
