Parent post is probably as balanced as you will get on /., I think he sums it up: Java is 98% problem-free cross-platform, if you poke long and deep enough you might find some problems, but these problems are most usually minor and mostly due to slightly different underlying platform issues like threading models that give different scaling behaviour (cross-platform doesn't mean you can entirely escape the platform you are running).
