C# is not like other Microsoft products, it is a totally
different breed. Simply for the reason that it has got Anders Hejlsberg behind it (the chief architect of Turbo Pascal and Delphi). It also depends on if Sun will be able to get its act together.
Shubhangi,i agree that there are some places where Java is not the best solution.But i disagree with ur view on platform specific issues.
In the first place,Java was desigend to give a cross-platform solution.So it is not in competition with products which give platform specific solutions.
Secondly,with the proper tuning and optimization,Java code can be compared in speed to any other platform specific code.
The Java language provides an environment to write cross-platform,error-free,robust and modular code.
