    Lol, now that's a complete list :) I'm going to start listing "stuff you built yourself" too.

    Correct
    The blame is of course to be placed upon Apple and all their rules (yay lets all program Objective C and basically be forced to resort to low level C also, because I say so), and Google for basically ripping Java for their own purposes and thus breaking up what could have been a thing of beauty. Hopefully in a couple of years Dalvik will be as good as the JVM built into Java 5 :/
