The lack of a command line on the Mac makes Java a real pain in the
butt.  I don't know about typical user use, but to distribute a Java
application on the Mac, I have to use a tool from the Mac Java package
to create a Mac application by feeding it the class, class path, and
other parameters.  (For CD distribution, I then need to write an
AppleScript that installs the software, since an application won't be
recognized on an ISO 9660 CD, since there's no resource fork...)
Playing nice with others is not something the Mac system is good at.
