.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.

Swing apps still feel disgusting, the looks, the font rendering - Just my 2 cents though

Mustang will be the first Swing release where it doesn't look awful. But that's something that should've been done years ago, so don't expect any big shift in toolkit usage.
