IMHO java is a good language, but C# is a better one, mostly because having come later, it had the advantage of learning from javas mistakes.

Could you give some examples ?

To my mind, C# is too much complex as compared as Java. I would agree if you made a comparison with Java 1.4, but Java 1.5 brought what Java was lacking (like enumeration, generics, ...).

Things like operator overloading, structures, the virtual keyword, ... from the C# world are, for me, useless and bring confusion when reading someone else code.

With Java (>= 1.5), there is just what is needed.

Unless you speak of the .NET library ?
