.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.

.NET in the enterprise??

Where? I am a developer working for a leading company that does enterprise development only for large companies. I still wait to see that someone uses .NET on its server backends. As a client framework - sure, Microsoft does not let you any alternatives if you want to use any dev env that comes from MS. However, the client of the software system from the company I work for exists as a native windows app and as a Java app (so even there, Java is present).
But, as I said, whatever MS tells you, I still have to see .NET on the server of enterprise class software - its simply not there in my surrounding field.
