.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.

The hype of .Net has worn off in many companies now, and they now see it for what it really is - a development framework, and not a means for world piece.

Companies have had extensive J2EE back-ends for some time, and they're not going to throw them out just because some Microsoft exec says that they're dead. Wishful thinking I'm afraid.
