Java "Although the .NET vs. Java war is basically over for control of the Windows desktop, where .NET is sure to become the managed language of choice for new Windows desktop applications, there is a new battle brewing. That battle is for the Linux desktop. Now that Java has been open sourced under the GPL, even the most strict of the 'free software only' distributions can start bundling it and integrating it into their Linux distributions out of the box."

C# is a nice language, get over it. I'm not saying "better" or "worse" than java, it's just a great language, and people is going to use it. And not just because Microsoft forces them, but because -again- C# is a great language. And mono is open source, just like java (not GPL, but open source)
