Why don't we follow the crowd and move to Java?

I think most Smalltalkers don't trust Java. We bear in mind its history - cobbled together out of C++ with a half understood nod in our direction - and the lack (as of today) of any complex application developed in it.

Let me rephrase that:

Why don't we follow the trend and move to Smalltalk?

I think most Javas don't trust Smalltalk. We bear in mind its history - meant as a learning System with no real huge vendor support and many common features lacking, never mind the inadequateness of the existing libraries - and the lack (as of today) of any complex application developed in it.
