    Now as for people hating Java, I think that's mostly due to the strict
    nature of it. After all, it's a statically typed, compiled language, and the 
    specs leave little to be implied.  I personally don't use Java and was never
    educated in it, I majored in Business.

  Yes, that is why I dislike it.  Null pointer exceptions, strictly typed, etc.  There are also some strange ways they've structured their object structure.  It often takes a whole bunch of code to do some simple things.  Maybe I could blanket it in the observation that sometimes the objects are not very abstracted or black-boxed.  Just my two bits on Java, and why I like it less.

  I _would_ like to get into Ruby or Python however.  I'm skimming them now (because of time constraints), and they look really fun.
