Java is a better choice than C# in many ways.
1. Java is a more capable and more portable programming language.


What? How? That's certainly not what I've taken away from it in my years of using C#.


2. Java is Open Source, C# is not.


ECMA-334 is the C# Language Specification.


3. By using C# applications, by programming in C# (especially on platforms other than Windows) you actually help Microsoft dominate the world.


Lol.

So, firsth the "registry api" and now the API, dude, admit you don't like mono because it comes from a MS idea, nobody will put a gun in your head to use it, and let the people who really know enjoy it.

None of which are required for the .NET Framework to run. It is perfectly fine for other operating systems to implement their own equivalent of those libraries.

A language and framework being cross platform does not inherently mean that everything written for that language and framework is platform independent.

Just like I do not expect every application I compile with GCC to be write-once, run-anywhere, I do not expect this with 100% of .NET Applications.

Are you done spreading FUD?
