JavaOne raised many questions for Swing developers regarding the future of client development and I'd like to take a first stab at answering some of them.
To me, one of the most enjoyable parts of JavaOne is hanging out in the audience in Hall E-135 (traditional home of the Desktop track) and chatting face-to-face with developers between presentations. Kirill Grouchnikov (of Substance look-and-feel fame) always asks us insightful and often difficult questions. This year he asked if he could interview me post-JavaOne to address many of the concerns which the conference raised for desktop developers. Read the interview if you're curious, and please post any follow-up questions.
