In US, the ratio of high profile projects hosted on J2EE platform compared to .net is like 65-35 and is not changing for almost a year.
So u can deduce the reality.

Can anyone compare the supply/demand ratios for j2ee programmers vs. .net programmers?
This is as important as the absolute numbers. I am interested in the US, but the same question could apply to other countries.
Entry level jobs open up when the demand for programmers outstrips the supply.
A plain Java search on Dice.com, yielded 9,041 results.
A plain .net search on Dice.com, generated 5,369 results.
A plain C# search on Dice.com, generated 1,819 results.
I don�t know if the preceding is an indication of "supply/demand ratios for j2ee programmers vs. .net programmers."

Microsoft operates strictly on, "The flavor of the day." Since Microsoft is a marketing empire, they have sufficient funds to shove their ideas down our throats. As a result, they bombard us with why .net is a better alternative. However, as soon as they release another product, they will abandon .net in favor of the new product. Unfortunately, those who jumped the .net bandwagon, will be left with a product that doesn�t have much support from Microsoft. Hence the term, "The flavor of the day."
