.NET (dotGNU too) Microsoft is leaving Java in the dust, but the company still has room to grow in the developer arena, a key executive said. Speaking at the Microsoft FAM (Financial Analyst Meeting) on July 27 in Redmond, Wash., Bob Muglia, Microsoft's senior vice president of Server and Tools business, said Microsoft's .Net platform has outpaced Java, particularly the Java Enterprise Edition, over the past five years to become the development platform of choice for enterprise development.

I thought that when they talked about Java for the web they were referring more to JSP pages rather than Java applets.

Personally I prefer PHP webs than JSP webs. They are faster and seem much more flexible. But some say (and it's probably true) that PHP is not secure enough for some kind of webs (for example, for banks) so those use JSP more (or ASP from .NET). In fact the only reason I have Java on my desktop is because I need it to enter my bank's web page. Otherwise I find it useless for a desktop.
