MicroSoft used to have their own version of Java. When Sun wouldn't let MicroSoft do their usual games of introducing things into the language that only worked under windows, MicroSoft went into a corporate sulk, and MicroSoft no longer provide any support for Java. MicroSoft then developed their own competing language C#.

Anyone would think MicroSoft didn't like programs that run in multiple environments.

Java is a very nice programming language and can be used for most applications. While many commercial programming projects still use C++, Java is an excellent introduction to object oriented programming. I've done a few projects using Java and I have to say it's my favorite way to create GUIs, and it's also my favorite language if I want to write something in a hurry.

MS still has their own version of Java called J# (or J++ pre- .NET)

As usual, they wanted their own programming language to dominate the web, but it didn't quite make it outside of folks who run IIS server that are .NET integrated.

They're trying it again with Silverlight. Trying to put Flash out of the picture.

I downloaded the free .NET dev editions and every damned one of them was set to install Silverlight by default.
