Ralph Johnson in his InfoQ interview made an interesting observation:

Are we because of the image really destined for relatively small
projects and small systems (of Java 50 people project size)?
Are we really not able to scale to bigger projects/systems because of that?
Ok, there are few exceptions of course (JPMorgan, OOCL, ..), but still...
