Why Java for Linux Applications?

I've written a modest desktop application to manage my Altus Metrum rocketry electronics. The first implementation used C and Gtk+. I eventually gave up on that implementation and started over using Java and Swing. The application now consists of about 25kloc using a collection of external java packages for things like speech synthesis, graphing and mapping. This presentation will describe what my experience with Gtk+ was like and why I was motivated to start over.
