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.
