.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.

"Migrating" whole deployments is silly, unless you like nothing but pain. Existing deployments don't just up and go, just slowly phased out while new stuff gets added on; after all, we're still sitting on top of tons of COBOL.

What shifts is the primary development platform, this is the 60%. When ever someone says XYZ has ABC% of the development market, they're usually talking about the space on new development, not what's already there.
