Who is kidding who here "Java is definitely easier and faster and better". I almost spat my coffee out!
Java may be easier and better to write with - when you want to write an app that runs slowly on all platforms maybe.
quote "Java is definitely slower than native programs. But its advantages far out-weigh this."
WHAT? Who for? Certainly not the user. Speed matters, here in raw processing world more than usual.
I love the way lightzone works, it is just way to slow. I use it only for images that my Lightroom does a bad job on - and in that instance Lightzone is way overpriced.
