I won't be writing in JAVA for the same reason I'm not writing in C.
Ignorance. But also I share Jennifer's reservations about JAVA. If I were
really interested in a going back to square one (and "hello world") I would
go with C.
If I re-write it in VisualBasic (which I am) or XBasic (which looks better
all the time) I already know a substantial percentage of the language. If I
completely change languages, it's likely to take MANY months before I'm
capable of even a rough alpha.
