This seems to be endless :)
Why doesn't just everyone pick up a tablet / device that can actually run Oracle Java / JavaFX, like WeTab, and starts pushing it forward?
I can already hear something about market shares, but in reality, applications are what makes the platform attractive.
I also bet that there're some people who are working on linux distros for smartphones. That's a great opportunity :)

Yes ok, you are right.

But all what Richard said is 

1. "JavaFX on iOS, ..." comes true when JavaFX is open sourced and the community
build the port
2. Oracle needs use cases, customers, real demand .... to make a good

So where is the real statement / position? When do you make a descision, Oracle?
What is your opinion about "the success of JavaFX without supporting mobile
platforms" Oracle???
