In Pictures: 15 things we hate about Java

Slow startup times, null pointers, security flaws -- Java's ongoing success leaves plenty to complain about

The Java thread pig farm When Java came along, the threads were lightweight compared to many of the other solutions. They were an easy way to juggle multiple tasks with the same memory space. Now, the folks using Node.js are always sticking their tongue out at the Java server platform and suggesting that the Java thread factory is one big pig farm adding 2MB of fat to the server RAM profile every time someone clicks on a Web link. Somehow, using the Java thread model is never as lightweight as it used to be. (Not that any of us still programming in Java are either, but that doesn't make it easier to live with.)

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
