Michelle Leroux Bustamonte on DotNetRocks way back in January 2003. She talks about the differences between Java and .NET. I know the date is 4 years ago, but the content is very relavent to me today. I personally will never really care about the inner workings of a Java application or the pain it evidently is to develop compared to .NET. But I think hearing and understanding what that world is like and how the Java ponytails think from the inside is very important for us to know how to compete. I think now that it is 4 years later, the reality is that Java is dying a death it deserves after punishing end users for the better part of 14 years now, and as a .NET family we need to be able to understand their perspectives so we can help them become productive .NET programmers. It is good to be compassionate :>
