I really want to invest time in javafx. Except the "evaluation sdk" is only available under MacOSX, and Windows. What the hell is the point of making something "cross-platform" but favoring only commercial operating systems? Maybe we should all abandon Linux, go back to Windows and allow Redmond to decide what should be on our desktops, suffer many more years of flaky and unstable applications. I mean Corporations only change if something really hurts their bottom line. And me, as a developer and user, suffering through endless upgrade cycles does not hurt Sun & Kie.
If this post seems unnecessary emotional and offends someone. Just remember humans responds to emotions, and technology which does not touch and enhance the human experience ends up as useless.
Hopefully this post will evoke some kind of response from someone at SUN which really care about the bigger picture. Believe me, if I had a email of such a person I would have rather use it than this public forum.
