It will be interesting to see Java is integrated into Inferno. Java's ``platform independence'' derives from a specific model of networking that I believe is less powerful than Inferno's model. Tough to get by without platform-specific features for Inferno namespaces and authentication. The language itself turns some people on, but the simple availability of the multi-platform vm has led to some porting and grafting of other languages and concepts onto the java machine, and analogous things are likely underway with dis. What Java does currently have is a rich set of graphics libs.
