Hi
I was told that Java is losing its fame due
to Microsoft's new platform independent language. Is it true?

Hello Dear
Microsoft platform independent language is c#(called as C Sharp)
its beta ver. is avaible & is very close to our own java with just different naming convention.lets watch & see how it takes up, but one thing for sure when Microsoft is behind it is definatly going to create a impact.

By the way, Microsoft's new language (c sharp) and new platform .Net is NOT platform independent.
If you look at C-sharp, the syntax is very close to Java.

Tom is right .NET is not platform independant, it's still very Microsoft oriented. This past weeks java is loosing market a bit it might pick up later on , or not depends i think on how developers will embrase .NET tools , which i read are really good , its one common invoronment one compiler for all which is very cool.

Not likely that c# will catch up to Java. Not only is it platform dependant, but you get to PAY for it. Course there will always be a market for it in the MicroSoft community.

Here in the UK java is the most in demand IT skill I expect the story is similar elsewhere, note that is IT skill, not just programming skill.
C# and .NET are new products either just out of or still in beta. Java has a head start of five years. I expect C# and .NET will be successfull, but it seems very unlikely to eclipse Java.
