Why are we going?

Fabrizio Giudci's recent blog, Where are we going?, prompts me to ask: Why are we going?

Fabrizio is worried about where Java 7 is going and about the topics that the community perceives as the most important.

I share many of his concerns about where the language is going, but I am also wondering why the Java language is changing at all?

Are problems with Java itself prompting change?

Are external factors prompting changes to Java?

Is Java changing just to change?

I sincerly hope that the last possibility is not a big factor.
