Insert your favourite language here
The Fishbowl: The Joy of Bombast: "More importantly, whenever I start hacking Ruby, I am overwhelmed by the feeling that this is... right. And I find myself going back to Java and thinking 'Why does this language keep getting in my way?'"
I might put Python instead of Ruby, or perhaps Smalltalk (less familiar).
I agree with the sentiment though! Whether Java is doomed is another question altogether - maybe it will become undead like Cobol.
