As a long time Java programmer myself, I fully agree. I have learned to live with the downsides, and appreciate the upsides, e.g. having a decent type system. Sure there are lots of other languages with that as well, but there are also languages with inexplicable type casts - IMHO that is not helpful at all, but a constant source of unnecessary surprises.
