The Java programming language has been a phenomenal success. It's a significant improvement over C and C++, and its libraries for network and GUI programming have introduced large numbers of programmers to previously esoteric disciplines. The recent European Conference for Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP) included the workshop on object-oriented language engineering for the post-Java era at which researchers gathered to examine languages that diverge from this model. The only way to produce a language over which one programmer can have intellectual mastery is to start with a really tiny kernel and add on what 30 years of experience has shown to be absolutely necessary.
