.NET and Then Again

Last week I got a chance to see (as part of my day job) back-to-back demos from two companies (1, 2). Both the companies are emerging startups and had excellent products and rich GUIs.
What was surprising to me in their architecture was a complete absence of J2EE. Reps. from both the companies talked positively about the .NET stack and its ease of use.
.NET recently completed 2 years since its introduction by MSFT. On the anniversary, BZ Media conducted a research — 46% of the developers said that they were planning to write new applications in Visual C#, up from 37% and second only to Java which still commands 54%.
Whither Java?
