Why Java is Cool

I come across a very interesting post today: a post that explains why Java is cool. I think the poster has some very good points about Java and I agree with him. Yeah, Java is cool and hopefully it will be cool for a long time. I’m excited about Java 1.5: it has some very nice features that will make Java more useful and easier. So why is Java cool? Here are the top-level reasons from the post (make sure you read his explanation on each one):

1. Java has considerably fewer surprises2. Java is not slow3. Swing is improving a lot4. Java’s libraries…5. Java has lots of good (free) IDEs6. Java is a programming platform

“So basically Java is cool because Java is for everybody. Not just a geek-only thing.”
