I'd love to hear some! :)

I'm especially interested in ones that are related to Java the language specifically, rather than platforms.

That slideshow was pretty convincing, although the last few slides cofused me. But I thought that this video is funny

Feels good, doesn't it man?

I bet C# on the JVM would have been interesting. One of the greatest things about the JVM is the sheer diversity of languages on it.

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.

It's obvious that C# is evolving more than Java. There is no denying it.

The best thing about Java the language is that it's on the JVM.

The only thing Java does worthwhile on the JVM is provide tons of stable and mature libraries that have accumulated over the years, and it's standard library that other languages can use. :P


Oh what i wouldn't do for a C# like language on JVM. Or the other way around...
Seriously .Net kinda sucks when it comes to libraries

Completely agree! .NET is a beautiful framework to work with. It's simple, to the point and very very powerful.

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?

But this where you are wrong, as many members have pointed out you can use c# on
Windows, Linux and Mac, with the use of Mono. Admit-tingly it itsn't yet compatible with the latest version of .net
