I received an email from Manning along with a link to their forum that caused me to pause. It was titled "Has .NET Leapfrogged Java?".
It seems that an anonymous author had three facts that made this true.
1. .NET has LINQ
2. C# had generics/foreach before Java.
3. .NET has Python, Ruby, F# and others.
These "facts" seemed a little light to me, and I said as much.
If you have an opinion on the matter of Java vs. C#, you might want to check this out.
