On the client part it's a shockingly bad idea (and I include
there). Googling will find you boatloads of apps that choose java for
portability and still can not run on anything else than windows, because
just deploying the right JVM on all the systems you may target is a
major problem (and I'm not even counting the free stacks there).
If it where that easy, we'd have the latest eclipse version in Fedora
with all the major plugins instead of the current situation.
Perhaps I'm missing context here, but I sense an implication that something
is wrong with "the current situation". Am I correct?
