.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.

""We've grown from having a quarter of the market to, now, 60 percent,"

I think thats a good degree of evidence, no?"

Would you believe him, really? It's not evidence as in "evident". I could say 'Linux has grown from about 4% in desktop usage to almost 23%, according to a market research.' and that is not more or less evident than what the financial guy said.
