what I meant was how the GUI integrates with different desktops (KDE/Gnome/Windows), Java applications mostly look the same (except those few times where someone developed the GUI with another toolkit)If you think this is a property of THE LANGUAGE USED TO IMPLEMENT AN APPLICATION
You are 100% IGNORANT!!!
I've no clue about iTunes, never used it, as for MS Word (and all the other Office 2010 products) I like those ribbon thingis...much faster than those menus.
I guess that would mean that iTunes and MS Word are all JAVA applications, according to YOUR theory!
it's called 'learning' and if someone thinks of himself as an expert in something IT related, he obviously isn't. To reflect your own knowledge and doings and to see possible errors is one major step which makes the difference between a bad IT guy and a good IT guy. Also typing everything in caps and using more than one exclamation mark at the end of a sentence is a good sign that the creator of that writing is mentally unbalanced at the time of the writing, I really hope that the next day will be a better day for you, it seems like you try to get rid some frustration/anger.AH YES!!! The SELF APPOINTED EXPERT who DOESN'T REALLY KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING!!!
may be true, but what buggs me in Eclipse is that you need a ton of add-ins to make that thing useful. Also it's one of the really few programs I really don't like (GUI wise), I seriously don't know why but something on that thing just makes me hate it for how it looks. Maybe it's the colours or the icons...I don't know, something just makes me hate that thing, aside from the add-in plague.1. I use both VS as well as Eclipse at work and in my Opinion Eclipse (for Java) is much better than VS for C#. Ctrl+Space has worked perfectly in Eclipse for ages...
@droidhacker and RealNC why such hate against Gnome? I like it (GnomeShell), it makes working much easier and faster than these old menu thingis. But then again...I also like the bash. And doing stuff on tty1.

I just uninstall mono from gnome3 and happy with it... Real man doesn't need C#.
So to the hell MS and their runtime. It's not even really cross-platform due to lack of cross-platform ways of implementing widgets. You see, WinForms are not covered by patents promise and implemented quite bad. WPF is mostly not implemented. GTK# you say? Whoa! So in Windows you need to install Mono, GTK# and then you can run your program. Leaving user with 2 copies of the same thing in system. How smart and convenient. You can't even reuse system's own runtime.
That's a festival of love, sure: if you deal with MS you will usually end being f...d up!
The full footprint for three apps plus the runtime needed to run them, in 12.04, was about 50 meg - up from a couple of years ago, due to the need for older versions of some libraries like GTK+ and Webkit.
And even 50 megz of libs is absolutely moron to run just some 2 or 3 programs who have alternatives allow to avoid bringing 50 megz of crap. Not to mention I dislike awful startup times of .net programs and idea of keeping ton of crap on HDD. Full .NET 4.5 implementation takes several gigz of assemblies on HDD. So either it would be feature-incomplete half-wrecked stuff or it have to be resource hog. Choosing from these options I prefer yet another one: "kill it with fire". Let's windows ppl enjoy by 20 sec program startup times, gigz of assemblies, hundreds of megs ram wasted by every program and so on.
