No simple answer. I prefer .NET/Mono because it is a strongly typed
language, for just one reason. For most developers, it is a matter of
preference. I learned programming C++, then C#. Java is foreign to me and
so does not feel natural. C# and Mono are a powerful combination.
Both Java and Mono have issues. Neither is perfect. I feel confident
enough in .NET/Mono that my company is using the combo for a graphical
application that runs on Windows and Mac.
