I think someone posted the same link here like 1.5 years ago. It's quite a populare link to people having a dislike towards java for some reason.
While some points are quite real sometimes, like 'the perception of java being an unstable platform to many customers', I don't see the word 'game' anywhere in there or anything remotely game related so I don't know how relevant this is exactly to what I'm doing.
It looks like just another collection of issues to me. Even an issue of 'disk size' is mentioned. I mean, *really*.
My point is, if you just look hard and long enough you'll always find the things you want to see. If you put them all on a list, things tend to look worse than they really are.
Making portable code with C++ is possible if you have the right wrappers and know what you are doing.
True, it just takes you a lot longer.
