i've always liked that website. if you notice on the what's NOT hot Java is there. Embedded Java is 'DEAD' lol. yeah, this is a place where people are hesitant to use C instead of asm and they're going to go with Java... NOT... lol. thin clients are DEAD... hmm, were they ever really alive?

Ya gotta love some of their quotes:

"There is no compelling reason for an experienced, salaried engineer to learn Embedded Java."

lol! java has become the ultimate solution in search of a problem. it has server side uses but just wait till MS gets done with them... i can almost hear Sun whining already. i saw something from hmm i believe a guy involved in C++'s STL creation and he described java as 'a language devoid of any intellectual value'... pretty funny. i like java the language but not java the Sun-controlled, OS wannabe, solution-to-everything, interpreted, acryonym hogging, VM-toting...

Embedded linux is very cool. Its nice being able to turn my computer into a router firewall by putting a disk in at start up when my system takes a dive.
