.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.

Yes, another example of Sun bumbling along and not taking a look at how Macromedia was able to produce a non-intrusive, easy, non-bloated installer.

Actually, I think the more important factor is the ease of development, especially media rich applets. Java is better when you have heavy logic and little animation and sound involved.

This being said, Sun should have started to work on the client-side experience earlier.
