... and a number of their own (non-summer-of-code) projects as well. Google Collections. Etc.
What Java really need is a better memory model: the thing that slows java down is memory allocation, NOT the JVM these days. C# gets it right, sadly.

or... Wiz to give up sabotage and easily outperform IG...
or Ford with one of his newest creations to eaze the day.
eMachines is building it standard into their netbooks' touchpad for gesture purposes.
I tried one out over the weekend. It's actually quite addicting once you get the hang of it.
To make Animal's post even more amusing, he could have substituted "type around" with "reach around while typing." :)
Even so, out of the box robocopy is the only way on Windows to copy files without bothering to rewrite existing ones -- Very useful for large interrupted file transfers.
