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."

That is complete bunk..where did you get this??? I have been working in Enterprise IT for 12 years and just about everything is written in Java. I would say you are backwards.. most consumer applications I see are written in C++, VB, or .NET, but most business applications are written in C++ or Java. I can't think of a single application I have used at work since the inception of .NET that is actually written in a .NET language.
