So I see that Sun has a version 1.0 production ready product to compete with Flex and Silverlight in the RIA world. Something to replace "applets" that failed last century. Great. So I go to the Sun site to learn, the videos look good. So lets download it.

Bzzzt. Wrong answer. Version for Windows and Mac OS-X. Nothing for Linux or Solaris.

They want me to write my "write once run everywhere" code on a Windoze box? Are they nuts?

Delaying a finished release for 80% of the users just so the other 20% don't feel like second-class citizens in the meantime doesn't make much sense.
