Yeah, but it won't.
(BTW: combine C# with the other languages under .NET for a more
accurate comparison. Java only has 1 language in its pantheon
whereas .NET has a number of them including Java.)
Why is C# so great? They have the best language designer in the world
Anders Hejlsberg and the best features. Check out LINQ, for example.
Java is a language built by a hardware company whereas C# was built by
a software company that focuses on languages first and foremost.
