I have recently started learning Java, and I have enjoyed programming with the language so far. When did you start programming in Java, and why do you prefer it to other languages?

Christopher,
"When" is a difficult question to answer. Some people learn it as their first programming language and others learn it many languages later. I have teenagers e-mailing me about learning Java and 70-year-old retirees. So "when" isn't easy. As for "why," I like Java because it has what I think is an elegant system of object-oriented programming. Other OOP languages have all sorts of rules that I have to memorize. In Java, the OOP rules seem natural and intuitive to me.
