Definitely! And 4 months isn't a long delay.
I would love a new MacBook Pro, but I'm trying to settle down on the hardware purchases. My PowerBook is still less than 2 years old, and I really have no need for an upgrade. So I'm planning on just the OS this year.

With the usual arrogance, Apple has never disclosed to Java developers its official plans about Java 6, but since the latest pre-release dates several months back we have understood that the final release is bound to Leopard. This was already a questionable decision, in any case until yesterday it looked like Leopard was really close so we could live with it.
Releasing Java 6 at October 2007 means TEN MONTHS of delay with respect to Sun release. We are back to the bad habits (Java 5 was released with a huge delay too).
I don't know but sometimes I feel that Apple don't care about Java developers although they are a huge sector of Apple's stuffs.
