.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.

could not handle more than a handful of users across the entire system

Just for the records, how many users is a "handful of users"?

It slowed considerably w/ five users, ground to a halt at twelve and began failing w/ exceptions and/or timeouts.

Our current systems, built w/ Java EE handle this effortlessly...and after being stress-tested w/ JMeter...will effortlessly scale to dozens of users in a non-clustered environment (if not more.)

I dare to say that there was something wrong which was not dued to .NET. We have portals which are entirely DB-based (and hence, every access is multiple database queries) and can handle 2000/4000 users per day without any hassle and without bogging the machine down. That's is so true that we have them hosted in shared hosting plans.

While I don't know details so I cannot comment about your figures, 5 users or 12 users is way too low (and while SQL2000 is not SQL2005, that's a Ent-level db solution).
