Groovy... (But not particularly compelling)

As I'm sure everyone and their dog has linked to now, Groovy is an attempt to create a JVM language with some of the characteristics of Python and/or Ruby, but hewing to the "java way". So far I haven't been particularly impressed, but I suppose I should actually download and play with it some day.

Sure, it's easy to install, but 10 times? (Knoppix install goes poorly on messed up hardware...)

Knoppix, as many of the none of you will surely know, is a bootable Debian Linux CD. It is also one of the easier ways to install Debian, you boot into the full Linux environment off the CD and run a (rather primitive) script to install to the hard-disk.
