Well, this is just nonsense :-) NASA World Wind for Java is made in  
Java, runs on everything (probably soon even on mobile phones), it's  
OpenGL based and fast, and takes advantage of hardware acceleration. I  
think that people should be able to defend their own legitimate  
technology choices without the need of saying nonsense about other  
technologies. :-)
