Hey, Adam! Look! They're going to dumb down Java! Bet you didn't think that was possible!

I'm assuming they will leave the language alone and just
provide a drag-and-drop visual model for creating GUIs,
that generates the code based on what you've dragged
and dropped. That actually would be pretty cool. The
only GUI code I've ever managed to write was in VB
(I'm normally a hard core system person, albeit evidently
a mediocre one with low standards, as I work with women.)
