I worked with Java briefly in 1999 and it was so miserably slow that I gave up on it. I've been avoiding it ever since because of that but recently I've started coming around. Probably mainly because I got an android phone and like to build apps for it. This requires at least a basic understanding of Java development. I also ran across some numbers recently that compare the speed of a site running PHP which I often use for small, light, projects, with Java and found that Java can support a very fast stack. The gap is still wider for Unix server's compared to Windows but the fact that Java has sped up as much as it has in the last 13 years make me think I might need to take another look at it.
