I hear you.

I haven't written any Java code, but I recognize that my opinion was not formed by modern experiences: I was woefully unimpressed with the insanely slow craplets of the late '90s (and Paul Graham's mentions of Java in his essays didn't help improve my opinion of it either ;).

Still, I'd be willing to believe that there are far more skilled Java programmers than there are skilled Javascripters, and something like GWT could only help the move to the web for many applications, especially if it truly helps to bypass the browser compatibility issues, not to mention far simpler testing and debugging.
