.NET Problem

You see, the major problem here is actually Microsoft. I am not Linux geek nor Java guru, I am just talking in general.

When the OS is not stable enough to be in enterprise to serve 24/7, don't even go to the app stability. There is nothing to do with .NET and Java in this case but then when we talk about OS in enterprise, you can only go for non-windows platform, which leaves you Java.

I don't understand why people are saying the language is aging and needs some change or something, honestly, I don't see any points there. I wouldn't argue Java has its own problem but if you are a good developer, you should see that Java, the language itself, actually gives you everything you need for the enterprise.

Besides, .NET a basically a copycat of Java and everybody knows, but the worst part is they copied and made it worst.

I tried C# once and omg...I can feel the major clone of Java with minor difference from Java and have a feeling of "hey, we can't clone 100% because of legal issues, we, Microsoft, already have million number of lawsuit...".

The IDE is not that bad, but a bit bloated, 2003 was pretty good at that time.
