Desktop Matters has kicked off today; I’ll put up some blog entries with interesting notes from the various talks.

The conference started with a keynote that I delivered with Dion. We addressed six reasons why we think the Java desktop platform matters, and announced a new cross-platform look-and-feel called Nimbus that will probably ship in beta around JavaOne ’07.

I’m very excited about the Nimbus announcement as it represents a way for Swing applications to look very impressive out of the box. I’ll follow-up with more info and post the slides very soon.
