I'm fully aware that Java != Javascript.
I was talking about the differences between client-side, desktop Java
apps and browser-based applets.

There's plenty of desktop Java based apps including Jitsi
(www.jitsi.org), Vuze P2P (vuze.com), Art of Illusion (Raytracer),
Sweet Home 3D (CAD), muCommander (JWS-enabled NC clone), jEdit, the
Netbeans IDE, FreeMind (mind mapper-productivity tool), Frinika (music
workstation), JShot (taking screenshots and uploading them to social
sites), PowerFolder (cloud storage/sync)

Or others like the burp LAN scanner or jHome home automation solution

JavaFX 2.0 and its open source release OpenJFX is client-side desktop
Java, and unrelated to applets or browsers.
