Response to: Java

The unwieldy syntax for getters and setters! Sun could learn much from the simple syntax of Delphi properties.

Ditto for the lack of enumerations. JDK1.5 introduces these, but lets us set the value of each (Like c++). So no chance of introducing Sets to the language later (Enums must be zero based to allow efficient set implementation) - Again, learn from Delphi!
