.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.

Agreed. Mustang has made great strides in the area of the desktop and Swing. Sure right now if you run Java Swing apps on it there are a lot of cool new features and things that can be done but since Mustang is not out yet, I cannot say what the industry response in creating new Swing apps on Mustang would be.
