Hi Stephen, Johan & James,

I have 2 questions for you:
1. I am looking to rewrite a file manager desktop application in Java with features like skinnable interface, file drag and drop, etc. Do you think JavaFX would be better suitable than Swing or could the amount of available libraries be a limiting factor?
2. If JavaFX is that great why big companies like, for example, JetBrains haven't switched over and are still using Swing for all their products? Is it only because of performance issues or are there some other potential issues?
