Give me a reason, any reason at all, to continue using Mac OS X as my primary development platform for Java applications. Java SE 6 is available now for Windows, Linux, and Solaris platforms. Why not for Mac OS X? Don't you dare mention that Java SE 6 is available on Mac OS X...I know about that. The available Java SE 6 implementation is stuck at build 88 and hasn't been updated in months.

Steve Jobs recently hinted that consumer interest of Java on their new iPhone was minimal. So, maybe Java ME won't be available there for a while. Maybe he also thinks that consumers aren't interested in Java applications on Apple's other hardware. Daniel Steinberg wrote a recent opinion piece on an O'Reilly site that questions Java's viability on future OS X systems too. Do you realize how disappointing this is?

For me, the question of consumer interest for Java apps on OS X is unimportant. I'm a Java developer, and I use a laptop or desktop computer to do my work. Although I don't care what platform my applications run on (that's one reason for Java after all), I might choose a Mac OS X machine for my development work. In fact, I already have. I have a MacBook Pro that I selected for two reasons:

- I wanted to try a Mac. Never had one before. I'm thrilled with it, its consumer apps, and its ui.
- I thought Apple was committed to Java on this platform, and I wanted to use it to develop Java apps regardless of what platform those apps would eventually run on.
