i suppose the slideshow has some valid points, but there are a few reasons why i prefer Java over C#
A lot i think , although C# has its own features , we cannot make seem it as downside of java , java in market before C# has emerged as fruitful , but there are many areas where java still rocks like small electronics device programming , enterprise programming etc. I specially like its Classic programming style.If someone feels like those scripting capabilities of language then Jython , JRuby , Groovy ... are there on JVM for you.
If you are strong in one of these languages and haven't touched the other, it would be a fair judgement if you studied the other language I think to ideally see which one rocks/sucks whatever. I know Java but at the moment but im studying C# (when im free), although I haven't had the chance to cover as much as I can in C#, I do believe neither one can be judged better than the other. Maybe when I get into detail within the .NET environment, I may see things I haven't noticed.

And that's a bad thing why exactly? The iPhone development stuff is Mac only and I dont see you bring that up every chance you get. Like it's a bad thing to use a language that only for the most used OS on the planet or something? When I develop something I want it to be available for the largest market, and that's developing for the Windows OS
You're kidding me, right? It's a bad thing because there is no reason that any platform shouldn't be cross platform, and limiting your users and developers to a single platform is straight-up assholish. I develop for Windows as well, sir, but I don't use Windows for development, and I still like to use my applications on the platform I develop them on. I don't mind you defending C# and .NET, because it's a fine language and a fine platform, but it's *windows-only* and that is a limitation no matter how you skin it.
When I write software, I have the option of making it cross-platform. That means it's available to a larger market than simply Microsoft Windows.
Why is it better for cars to run on gasoline rather than Dr. Pepper? Why is it better for a bed to have a mattress on it?
Why is living in your front yard when you have a 3 story house a bad thing?
