Doubts about "business university"

When i was filling the university preferrence form, i found that IT of Monash university(Melbourne, Australia) has the following introduction:
Sun Microsystems made Monash one of a handful of foundation Authorised Academic Java campuses in the world.
and also:
Monash conducted the world's first course on Microsoft's .NET
So my question is:
1. A university involves in two companies, and they're fighting against each other, what if a student choose electives from both side?
2. How long can .Net last since new things were created frequently by Microsoft? If there's a course particularly focuses on .Net, is it reliable?
3. Is this university good to go to?

This isn't some geopolitical strategic alignment--it's a business partnership. For example, IBM has had partnerships with Microsoft, even though they compete against each other. There is nothing wrong or problematic with multiple companies, even competing ones, partnering with a university.
