well, we certainly do stuff in pure java for the majority of our
research now-a-days, but that's not to say that is always the case.
i'm really not concerned about development on multiple platforms for
myself, i've done that enough i know all the ends and outs there in a
big way; what i'm more concerned with is installing, building,
supporting, upgrading A applications * B platforms for C people.
