  • We're going all Java baby! (4 Jun 2002 00:00)
  • Why would I want to lock myself and my code down to the evil empire. Lack of portability and all the other real coders would make fun of me :P .Net is for those who either have to do so because of their job, are ms kissups, or do not want to learn (or are unable to grasp) a real, platform independent programming language. (2 Jun 2002 00:00)
  • 110% Java -0% .NET (1 Jun 2002 00:00)

  • Java rules... (31 May 2002 00:00)
  • The exciting thing about working with MicroSoft code is that since it's proprietary they can do what they want with the standard. As often as they want. (30 May 2002 00:00)
  • I've invested too much on java I don't like microsoft monopol (30 May 2002 00:00)
  • It cut my comp speed in half, took up a crapload of memory, and was just too big and too complex. So much for RAD! (30 May 2002 00:00)
  • To proprietary. (30 May 2002 00:00)
  • I don't marry with ancient and proprietary technologies. (29 May 2002 00:00)

  • The latest MS attempt to own the IT world for a (too-high) price? Forget it. OpenSource is the way to go. (29 May 2002 00:00)
  • Java Rocks, no chance. (29 May 2002 00:00)
  • it's not a langage, it's an idea not finished for a langage ( java is more easy and more strict ) (29 May 2002 00:00)
  • .NET is a pirated version of J2EE (28 May 2002 00:00)
  • One can only ride one horse at a time. Java is the one horse I've chosen. (28 May 2002 00:00)
  • There are some major security problems and issues. (28 May 2002 00:00)
  • I've already tested .net but it is still buggy and missed important features and stability. Java&J2EE have major advantages on this point ! MS.net portability is a fake out of MS world, so i better still keep here on a real world neo ;-) (28 May 2002 00:00)
  • It's a "win32-only" alternative (27 May 2002 00:00)
  • What kind of question is this to ask at a Java sight? Java is obviously superior. (25 May 2002 00:00)
  • Java suits me just fine. (25 May 2002 00:00)
  • I have no plans to utilize .Net for any development, though I do plan to learn enough about it so as to be able to provide convincing arguments as to why J2EE is a better way to go. Certainly there are sufficient reasons for using J2EE instead of .Net that I already know, but being conversant in .Net should provide the additional credibility that may be required to fully convince potential clients to adopt a J2EE solution instead.

  • M$ suckz a lot!!! (14 May 2002 00:00)

  • Will always stick with Java. (13 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • shit (13 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • I love Java. I think Java platform will save the tech world. I would like to thank SUN, IBM, BEA, ORACLE, HP & others for thier relentless contribution. I dont think .NET has chance but what MS has is money and they can buy support. This is what I fear. Java is way superior than .Net. I have looked at .Net and it has the same old crap from MS. It is time for corporate world to listen to programmers like us not MS marketing. (13 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • .NET may be nice from an architectural point of view, but I don't want to use it because I believe Microsoft has too much power and is abusing it. /Ernst de Haan (znerd at FreeBSD dot org) (13 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • wacala (13 Apr 2002 00:00)

  • No (12 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • It will be catastrophic! (12 Apr 2002 00:00)

  • it's shit! (11 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • Increasingly complex software developement is an engineering discipline. Java in all of it's flavors is engineered, .Net and most MS junk is slapped together junk, not engineered. (11 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • Too clumsy framework. Java combined with XML is the future not .Net (10 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • We don't like the monopolisters like MS. If we enter into the .NET we will loose our freedom. It is like a tick which leads to a definitive Jail for the developers (10 Apr 2002 00:00)

  • .NOT!.NFW! .WHY? (8 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • anything MS is a poison (8 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • Sure it's probably easy to use but Microsoft Security is a freakin joke! J2EE has been around a lot longer and is a lot more secure. (8 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • I work with Linux and .NET is nowhere in the vicinity (8 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • I don't trust it. (7 Apr 2002 00:00)

  • Absolutely, positively, NOT ! ! ! (5 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • I am more interested in open source and I believe in it a lot. So, I am sticking with Java. (5 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • .NET sucks !!! (5 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • .net is quite new (4 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • Microsoft will never beat the power of JAVA!!! (4 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • Java is sufficient! (4 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • why should I become a slave under miro$soft? they claim thay you will be able to run applications "anywhere, anyhow and on any device", but that's not entirely true, just as long as it's copyrighted and totally dependend on miro$soft! :P (4 Apr 2002 00:00)

  • Because i like java and only anser for this question.... (1 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • Lets make a copy of java and change some keywords around. (1 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • Lousy piece of software to con unsuspecting and innocent developers (31 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • To fall into Microsoft's bait-and-switch trap again? I don't think so... (30 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • java is good enough for me (30 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • Sticking with open standards. Foole me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on *me*. (29 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • It's Microsoft. No comment necessary. (29 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • Even if .NET were free and was ten times better I wouldn't use anything from those corrupt people in Redmond (29 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I have never used any microsoft sdk in my 10 years of programming. I am forced to use win2k at work and sooner or later will convince my boss to install redhat/kde :-) (28 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • If your Boss won't let you programm in JAVA QUIT .NET = Next Extinct Toy (27 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I prefer Java Technology (27 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I have no immediate plans to do so. Currently Java fits all of my needs and runs on the platforms that I need. When .NET runs on Solaris and Linux then I might consider it. (26 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • pure java (except openssl for PKI) (26 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • not yet not ever (26 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • No need. You will never have everything under one roof. (25 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • i love sun not bill (25 Mar 2002 00:00)

  • The day .NET becomes my only career option is the day I leave this profession. (25 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • My analogy is that .NET/C# is like freeze-dried coffee and any good coffee connoisseur knows you can't beat all-natural java when it comes to taste. (24 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • When Hell Freezes Over. (24 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I'll be a starving coder before then! (23 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • filthy ms technology (22 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • .net is just an attempt from MS to protect them from the Java tsunami. But this is already too late for them ... By pushing .net and cuttin their legacy stuffs they just legitimate Java and force their user to migrate to a new platform. This is a great opportunity for the Java community ! (22 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I believe this is a poor marketing ploy from microsoft it disalows portability and ties you to microsoft's OS's this is not a wise way to base your product if you are developing and want to appeal to the whole market (21 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • J2EE is the way to go (21 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • Screw Microsoft! (21 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • php is all you need (21 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • Why go back 2 or 3 years in the past? To help MS debug buggy software to profit? No thanks. Use Java. Learn takes time and time IS money. (20 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I don't like the way microsoft is doing it's business - I mean I wont support a company, whose sole interest is not in making software for people, but who wants to dominate the world. And allthough technically well designed it is not as big as ms wants it to be - it's another stack and bytecode based IL, like java and yes it has support for webservices but these can (and should be) developed with other technologies as well. (20 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • what is .net? :-D (20 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • It's not so easy as it seems to be. My nose's sniffed problems with .NET technology. (20 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • U are sure to get a truckload of bugs for free (19 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • Microsoft is crap. (19 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I belive that much less evasive techology is out there with much more potential than a platform that is by no means an original concoctation of microsoft... Java is out pacing the .NET platform with web services, xml , and mobile api's... (19 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • that's the main reason why I don't like Microsoft every 1-2 years something new. Asp or whatever - never again!!!! cYa DBass (19 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • Sorry but I'm Java fun and my CPU ( head ) hasn't enough computing capabilities to deal with another net philosophy. The second reason is portability - I don't like to work for and on Windows. (17 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • Java rules, .net sux. (17 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • Though the .Net platform may be better integrated with better tools, i dont like being locked in with one vendor...that too...microsoft. ugh! (16 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • This is just what the IT world needs: another Microsoft toy. (16 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I favour platform independence (15 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I would rather get my teeth pulled out through my anus! (14 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • SOAP is plenty for now. (13 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I'd rather stick needles in my eyes. (13 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • In the UK, most companies are opting for J2EE for enterprise applications. .Net seems more destined for smaller organisations and won't get into larger organisations. (13 Mar 2002 00:00)

  • .NET = Nice and Eloquent Try to fake platform independence (7 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I am sick of hearing about .NET from everywhere. Microsoft can market all they want but when it comes to productivity, any time I have to use one of their products I run into tons of bugs. I would have to be forced into using .NET. I already use SQL Server, isn't that enough troubles for one person? (7 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • It takes 3 versions for Microsoft to get anything right. Anyway .NET does not make any sense for large organizations strategically. It probably makes some sense for small-to-medium size organizations if they are a Microsoft shop. (7 Mar 2002 00:00)

  • Are you kidding me? ;-) (7 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • I'm working for a big international company that doesn't want its website to be dependent on Microsoft's whims. Not only speed of development counts, but also maintenance. (7 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • The last thing I would do unless my employer say I must. (6 Mar 2002 00:00)

  • Sorry, just can't bring myself to fill Billy's coffers any further. (6 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • Because .net emulates the Java architecture so much it should be easy for vendors to provide products that will port Java code to net if it were necessary without having to leave Java. (6 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • The Windows lock-in is not really acceptable for the kind of software I'm working on. (6 Mar 2002 00:00)

  • I'm staying informed about it, but as far as I can see C# is just Java with a few unnecessary additions. It's unclear exactly what .NET is or what it will be. I think the whole thing is more marketing BS. (6 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • Only if I want to lock myself into Windows.... (6 Mar 2002 00:00)
  • May I never ever enter that MS pit of evil. Believe me, software developer preferences and advocacy work in my buisness, and I will be a strong advocate against .NET . (6 Mar 2002 00:00)
