Where can I get info from, besides Microsoft, about how similar J# is to Java?

Do you mean C#?
Check out C# Station -- don't know how good it is -- it was the first non-Microsoft site I found doing this Google Search

No, I meant J#. That is supposed to be Microsoft's answer to Java. This is a quote from their site: "Microsoft Visual J#� .NET is a development tool for Java-language developers who want to build applications and services on the Microsoft .NET Framework." Does anyone else know anything about it?

My understanding is that J# is intended to be a bridge for any poor fools who are still trying to develop Java applications using J++ (Microsoft's mutant Java version which was frozen around 1.1.8 due to the lawsuit). J++ apps can be converted to J# apps, which in turn fit into the .NET framework. And unlike J++, J# doesn't claim to be Java, so MS can do whatever they want with it.
