JavaFX Preview SDK Available

I was one of the pessimists that didn't believe in this new buzz word - Java FX. Today I'll have to say "excuse me, please". The JavaFX SDK preview was released. It is not final version at all. But you can try it and play with it. All the major problems has been fixed (I hope), all the API changes are finished(or not, Chris?).

I tried a few demos.

Why the dialog isn't transparent? And why the \*\*\*\* the stock data are not updated?

Oh my goodness, is this the Flash killer?

The experience was simply AWFUL.

Prompting me to download, prompting to confirm, showing me an ugly installationd/download progress.

Flash abstracts this all away and just WORKS.

JavaFX, tell me they haven't just recycled that other still born project Java Web Start?
