As a Java developer, I'm very happy to see this feature in the JVM!

I can't help to wonder, however (sadly), if it's too late...

Other languages have had this capability for a while. And I think Java has lost a lot of projects/developers in the past few years to languages such as Go.

It seems to me (and would love to be proven wrong) that Java has moved into Late Majority, or dare I even say... Laggards teritory.

From what I can tell, developers' minds today are occupied by Rust, Go, JS/TS, and Python.

It's a shame, but here we are...
