You mean they aren't user friendly now?

Seriously, this is an extremely broad and vague specification. As a start you might want to look at some of the GUI admin tools the Red Hat has or YaST on SuSE. There's also Webmin for remote GUI administration. I'm not sure what languages those all are written in, though.

I can't believe anyone would seriously want to take a beautifully elegant system like Linux and cripple it with Java. It takes all sorts, I suppose <shakes head in disbelief and despair>.

You can try looking for command line tools or configuration you find useful and create a gui/front-end for it. Look for something you need and could do yourself and then see if it can interest someone else.

Examples :
* A sophisticated gui to configure fluxbox for novice fluxbox users, a very user friendly tool :-).
* A gui for a command line antivirus in java(and maybe jni, to call C/C++ libraries from java)
