It seems to me we're jumping to the conclusion that LDM2 is intended only on
Windows and that it will be Java... If there's a way to have it function on
Linux & Windows, without being Java, I see no reason anyone would object?

I also think IDV is better under Windows than Solaris or Linux..and I will
conceed Windows has good points. However the data ingest is the backbone of
one's whole operations...and like you say Java is ust not worth it. Makes
more sense to me for Unidata to insist on UNIX/Linux only platforms for that
portion and then as Dan suggested maybe offer some help to those new to UNIX
or Linux. It's not like an LDM-type only box needs that much attention. I
never touch our PDI NOAAport boxes at all. I would touch my other LDM boxes
if they weren't doing so many other things.
