Q&A With James Gosling, Father of Java

aCapitalist Re:Makes you wonder. (172 comments)

Why make the effort to move to another Microsoft development system after getting burned.
I doubt that Java is that much harder for a VB shop to move to than C#. Plus you are not stuck with a one vendor one OS solution.

Why would a Microsoft shop go with Java, when C# 3.0 is coming out? I guess there's a point to be made that Java is so dumbed down that a VB shop could handle it, but typically it's Microsoft tools that keep them coming back.
