Hrrm - where is java going?

First I read this< from Ross and also this from RMS, and it makes me think even more about switching to python. Just what exactly are Sun up to and what are their long-term plans? The 'Java trap' is actually a nice way of putting it and drives me further to look into alternatives.

Am thinking about nice projects for python - the first that comes to mind is this one which stores the magazine articles - all I need now is an idea about how to store them - XML or just in plain files? I'm open to suggestions - please feel free to write to adamc@linuxmail.org with your ideas if you have them.
