I agree to some degree - and if I would have to write java from
scratch I would immediatly choose cairo as API for 2d rendering. (not
creating Java2d api on top of it)
However for Java2D almost everything is already there (GDI, Direct3d,
OpenGL, X11, Quarzt, Software, ...), its working well :) and layering
Java2D on top Cairo probably isn't that simple.

Thats great, it was not my intention to offend you.
