wht is the purpose of learning java

Quite apart from the importance of learning anything significant, Java represents the first effort to make an OO languange accessible to all but the authors of those who (quire rightly) were "pointing" us in the right direction.
C++ was a "superset" of C, and has always suffered as a result (arguments please), but Java redefined the boundaries of what a programmer "needs to be concerned with". You create objects, you use them, but otherwise the syntax is very C-like (a language very familiar to most of us old farts).
My question is: do you have a better alternative? Languages tend to evolve from other ones, because the syntax is understood.
Bats fly at night, 'cause they aren't we. And if we tried, we'd hit a tree -- Ogden Nash (or should've been).

There's a hidden assumption in that question, namely the assumption that Java is important. But in fact it isn't important. There are 7 billion people in this world, and about 6.999 billion of them don't know how to program in Java and are perfectly happy being that way.
