I like java for how it can be run on virtually any device.

I prefer Java since there's virtually no memory management.

Everyone should learn some C++, however Java is easier and more efficient I think. Like a previous poster said garbage cleanup is mostly automatic.

Java is easier to use and learn, and it requires less work for a similar outcome. With Java it really depends on the environment or program you code it in; as there are a lot of awkward conventions and rules that must be followed while coding that can be automated.

It is also not quite as flexible or capable as C++. You simply can't quite do as much with it.

That's not to say Java is always easy, either. Sometimes it is a pain in the ass to get some more obscure things running.

Pascal, that is where it is at! :p

Java is for people who can't grasp pointers, and for students who instead of learning about operating systems and machine language are playing starcraft 2 in the campus computer center.

Pointers suck. Why do I need such low level allocation?

Java is just easier. Almost Python easy.

Thats good to hear :D
I found many Java vs C++ topics and alot of people talk down on java saying that C++ is better in every way possible. Since I am learning java at school, I did not want to think of it as a waste.
