.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.

So now eWeek is reduced to a progpoganda organ for Microsfot? All this "article" does is repeat a bunch of baloney from Microsoft up to and including the title. Then OS News does the same thing. Anything for page views I guess. Yes .NET has done very well in a short period of time but they had Java leading the way. J2EE is still king anywhere you have very large multi-tier applications with high volumes of transactions such as Banks or other financial institutions. .NET is a joke to any company that needs this level of application. .NET reminds of when desktop publishing became cheap and easy. lots of people got into DP and most of them did it poorly.
