I was preparing a short post about that, but I've run into an InfoWorld comparison of the...

Well, this morning I delivered my talk and, as usual, now I'm more relaxed. Things tried really to go wrong as my power plug adapter (that I've been using until this morning in the hotel) refused...

Today is the big day (well, actually the introductory keynotes have been held yesterday evening) and I was eager to splash into the atmosphere of the new JavaOne.
