Re: Much better than Java
You mean Applets, right ? To say the JVM used for servers\desktops\mobile is insecure is totally wrong, it is not less secure than any other language, even more secure than C/C++ (buffer overflow exploits, jiha). C#'s Mono is definitely less secure, in terms of code quality of the VM. And the Microsoft .NET cannot be as good as Java, since it was not always open source. Only opensource products can be safe, since many hundrets and thousands of people can verify the code. Linux Kernel vs NT Kernel. NT is crap, Linux is safe, evolving and very secure (its open source ;)) Applets are not safe, because sandboxing is a very, VERY, difficult research topic, not a single product did it right, be it adobe, java, silverlight or what ever, they are all full of flaws.
