1.4 +1 for the same reasons I've seen others post: 1.5 adoption will be 
lagging 1.4 adoption in mainstream use for sometime. 1.4 is already 
advancing on this front, and has lots of nifty NIO stuff to leverage.

The Mac OS X example is a good one. Tiger will only support Java 1.4 
and 1.5 when it comes out, and Panther will always remain at 1.3 and 
1.4. Not that the Mac OS X user base is a huge percentage of the total 
http-client market, but Apple's decisions are shaped by the same 
development and testing realities which affect every large software 
project, whatever platform it runs on.

(Didn't vote earlier since I thought it was restricted to developers.)
