From a user's point of view, Java pisses me off.

Many IDEs and command line tools I use daily are based on Eclipse (which runs on Java). With large projects, you always run into the default memory limit. You google the error and go change the command line settings or config file to manually specify a larger memory limit. .Net doesn't have that, at least in windows. You run out of memory when the process or operating system limit is hit.

Almost all of the Flash-related tools use Java:
Flash Pro
Flash Builder
MXMLC (compiles actionscript, flex, mxml projects)

Working on any large project involving a Java-based IDE inevitably runs into their artificial memory ceiling. I've never run into a single .Net app that has this kind of annoyance.



Cross-platform toolchain automation is a hassle with Java compared to .Net. Spawn a process and then get its process ID. You can't do this in Java. You can in .Net and Mono.


Mike's post above about Java's windows installer wanting to install toolbars was seriously the last straw for me. What is this, a startup company trying to get quick ad revenue? NO. IT'S ORACLE. Stop being douchebags, Oracle!
