Poll Result: A Mix of Views on Java Fragmentation

This past week's poll asked "What threat does further fragmentation of the Java language pose?" The results were somewhat surprising to me. A total of 182 votes were cast, with the following results: 19% (34 votes) - It will destroy Java 27% (49 votes) - It's not good, but Java will survive 12% (21 votes) - Java has so large an installed base that it doesn't matter 28% (51 votes) - Having different Java/JVM flavors is a good thing 13% (24 votes) - I don't know 2% (3 votes) - Other What surprises me about this is the option that received the most votes, "Having different Java/JVM flavors is a good thing."

In fact, 46% of the voters consider fragmentation a problem (summing the "It will destroy Java" votes and the "It's not good, but Java will survive" votes). New Poll: "Corporate" feel at JavaOne?
