  • ... at least kinda anyways.

    I like it's approach to problems, even if it does get a bit wordy at times, and highly likely to give me RSI.

    With a good tool like IDEA that does tons of auto-completion and magic, it's fairly tolerable though.
    • I've done more Java than Perl in recent times, and it's a lot more bearable with a decent IDE. I use Eclipse [eclipse.org], though IDEA [jetbrains.com] is supposed to be better. I've never figured out NetBeans [netbeans.org] (though the Ruby support in 6.0 means I'll have to take another look).

      I'd also say that I find the new language features in Java 5 make a huge difference. I find having a proper foreach loop, enums, etc make it a much more pleasant programming experience.
