Hi all,

I'm having fun writing a new cross platform client. I started out in
fpc/lazarus and quickly realized I would be able to have a client for
both linux and windows that way, some questions remain regarding mac
support (socket implementation in fpc seems questionable there).

Later I started to look at java and writing the client in java would
make it work on any platform capable of running java (thats many).
But, java means a jre is required and thats 13 MB extra on the live cd
etc. Also, what is your current view of java? Are there things you do
not like about it or do you find it slow or...?
