Why I Don't Want to Bother with Java

java

I know, I know. Some people can't pick their language. They're stuck with what they're stuck with. For those people, Java rules. It's been a major language for a long time now. Can't deny its "popularity."

I tried to get into it once, but it's a miserable language to work with. The JVM is impressive, but the syntax drives me mad. It's a cosmetic thing, I know, bet even [the "Hello World" example] turns me off:

class HelloWorldApp {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("Hello World!"); // Display the string.
    }
}

Commodore 64 BASIC:

10 PRINT "HELLO WORLD!"

I'd sooner give up lower case letters than deal with Java, thanks...

You can’t perform that action at this time.
