Look, I'm an independent programmer and I can pretty much chose everything about what I program in. Still, when it comes to completely new, and not very mission critical projects, I go for Clojure (still a bit green and unsure on my lipspy feet). When it comes to existing projects and serious stuff, Java is and Java will stay. Way too much code invested in it. I can and I do try to evolve my style and tools, but the one single thing that's always been in my way was a complete lack of higher order functions (anonymous classes are a verbose joke). So yeah, I'm ecstatic :)
