JavaFX Script: The worst programming language ever since rotten bread

No matter how hard I try to convince myself to use it to create cool-effect-fueled desktop apps or RIAs I just can't do it. JavaFX Script is ugly, ugly, and ugly.
And thanks, Sun, for simply ignoring and not including a table component in your "production-ready" marketing-ware RIA platform.
I have no idea what's going on "inside" Sun, but when at a very crucial step of the development cycle of JavaFX, two key members (Chet Haase and Hans Muller) and other influential minds behind JavaFX like Rich Green leave the team, nothing but a crappy and lacking product can be expected.
Oh, and thank you Apple for not moving your ass and updating your Java 6 implementation to 6uN to make all these demo-ware JavaFX apps run as sluggish as possible on OS X. Yeah, I know. We have to wait for Snow Leopard to see 6uN on OS X.
