The other conspicuously missing Java platform

Sony announces they’re removing the PlayStation 2 content approval process, thereby making PS2 effectively an open platform.

Do you suppose this will hasten Java for PlayStation 2, promised in the JavaOne 2001 keynote?

No, of course not, but it’s fun to recall this among other J1 vaporware — anyone remember the 2004 announcement of Java for the hated and vaporous Infinium Phantom console? — as a counter to whiny little bitches who can’t get over Steve Jobs’ arguably unkept vow to make the Mac the best Java platform. Seriously, kids, half of what gets announced in keynotes never ships… get over yourselves already.

And not needing any comment from me (because the forum’s already hopping): [FYI] Sun stopped funding of SwingX.
