    A few questions about Visual J#

    1. Why does Microsoft call it Visual J#? Is it similar to their C# language?
    2. Can I write beginning console programs or programs that are run in a command window instead of a GUI?
    3. Is Visual J# true Java or did Microsoft do something to it to make it different somehow? Can I use it and have it work with my examples in my book?

    Java has always been free, and "free" is a fighting word at the MS place. The goons
    there where bounced out from Sun when they showed up with fake entry passes and
    they have been trying to make something similar ever since, - but with their own little
    twist; the want money.

    The visual name is something the MS guys have been dragging along
    since the days of Visual C++, they still keep it, trying to lure the world into
    beleiving that the rest out there is invisible.

    So, if you want to learn java, then use it, and forget J#. Its exists only
    because someone (MS) are trying to get richer, not to improve computing.

    If microsoft made cars we would have to get new ones every time they
    repainted the stripes on the roads
