To be fair - both of those guys are trying to build an ecosystem - not just an OS, but an OS and tools and products layered on top of it. They want to create an environment that you want to come to and spend $$$.

Oracle's bottom line is about Big Data and the appware in the middle of it. That middle ware uses several technologies for graphical display and JavaFX is just one of them. Unless you are a middle ware customer, you probably have not seen any of them, because unlike MS Word, or Apple ITunes, they are not usually seen by the general public.

It certainly would be nice to have more JavaFX applications (real apps or even good demos) as it would help showcase the capabilities. Jasper has whipped together some interesting demo apps over the years for JavaOne

Any suggestions on good demo apps for small boards (Pi, i.MX6) ? (Existing or otherwise).

A technology owner, usually, when tries to create a real world app only creates a demonstrator of a real world app, which doesn't have any success.
