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."

People seem to believe Java and C# are worlds apart, they're NOT. Look at IKVM and Jacil, they can recompile Java bytecode into .NET CIL, and vice versa, you don't even need the source code.

There probably won't be a clear winner, and we may even see them working together in the future.
