There is plenty of free Java software available and lots of stuff coded for 
Tomcat/Xerces/Xalan, much of which is vertical type applications. Java is a 
tool, nothing more, nothing less. There is actually quite a bit of free 
software and tools available to support Java on Linux, and people are using 
it all the time...although I don't have any real numbers for you. Not that it 
would matter, you would most likely contort some pinhead view of the world 

Whether that code was developed by these so called "pinstripe cubicle slaves" 
is probably arguable, since I don't even know what or who they are.
