No - the move away from Java is to reduce dependencies for the desktop
user. For the user it doesn't matter what software the server runs on.
The only problem with java is the overhead for creating the virtual
machine. On the server it doesn't matter - it is initialized once on
reboot and always available.
But on a regular user's computer, who doesn't use another
java-application already, the startup of the JVM can take a few
seconds. (and of course use a significant amount of ram).
