Nah, a lot of people love and swear by Java.  I wouldn't choose to use
C++ either.  Never tried C#.  I'm one of the weirdos who actually likes
Perl, and if I were to switch to something else it would probably be
Ruby.  Maybe if I ever got into doing client apps instead of web apps my
views would change radically.
