I like C++, hate java, it's for web pages not desktops (imho)


using java as a standard for scripting widgets will be a disappointment for me.
after trimming the fat and optimizing, I think the lean memory footprint and any speed increases will be lost after implementing java.

    Dear nitwit,

    There is no talk about Java in the article. The scripting used is JavaScript, which is a whole different thing. To have a better Java integration would be great, but I don't think that will happen. Using JavaScript for scripting in Widgets can make things a lot easier for developers, so that can become very interesting.
