What's the most important

It will also be nice to be able to have two Java applications able access the sound card simultaneously on Linux!

What's the most important

I picked coin because I'll use it more in day-to-day tasks than the other features. But the NIO filesystem additions will actually allow me to do things in Java that I couldn't do before without native code/hacks.

Voted different as I'd be

Voted different as I'd be most interested in the odd speed tweaks that've gone into the v7 JVM ..oh and its basis on OpenJDK. InvokeDynamic I might use indirectly via Groovy/JRuby but in my daily coding rotines? can't see myself using it. Small coin dosent exactly trill me either, for the most part the syntax 'enhancements' don't seem worth sacrificing backwards compatibility with Java 6.
