Well, I agree on 95% of these points but I doubt that Sun is making such a change. The potential of breaking with Java developers and not-so-freaky Java-users is high: "Why should I change my working code if I can also change it to .NET and never need to change it again?" Well, this is what many might think as Microsoft is the master of backwards compatibility (not perfect, but they try hard!). Sometimes you need to keep some old stuff to succeed.
