I think Java is the best way of writing active web servers right now, and that active web servers are the way to go for many applications. I believe very much in Java thin clients for many computer users, but not all. Office suites written in Java will play an important role in enterprise computing, but will take some time to mature. The best thing about Java is that you can use the same language to do very different things, from embedded systems to large-scale network servers.
