Nothing is to harm java programmers
some say java is good, other says vb is best, yet others say xyz is the best!!!
Common, why we developers fight so much on something so useless!!
To me, i believe, every language has its own heights and limitations.
If we are developing for the internet, java is the best due to its cross-platform
If we are developing a windows app, vb is most productive
if we are working on something really techy and deep down inside the OS,
C or C++ may do the job
If we are writing something as complicated as a device driver, nothing can
My point here is that the adoption of a language depends upon the the budget,
hardware and requirements of the project. Its apparent that most companies
will not go for .net if they dont have a microsoft -compatible hardware
system OR they dont want to be stuck with microsoft only techologies.
Those companies which are already using microsoft based hardware will definitely
embrace .net technologies.
As for us, the java developers, we will probably be happier to enjoy microsoft
enhancement in visual j if we want to develop for windows ONLY.
and when we want to go world wide, we simply embrace sun's java!!

Have you tried licensing Classic VB lately? You get to buy a VB.NOT
license, contributing to Micro$haft's wild, ridiculous, hyper-inflated
claims of "widespread developer acceptance" and then beg MSFT to allow
you permission to "downgrade" to VB6:
Of course, if all you want is VB6 Pro, that's over $1 000 per developer
seat, since there is no VB.NyET Pro, only Visual Studio.NET Pro... Cha
Are we having fun yet?
