    Default .Net or Java?

    Where is the demand, where are the jobs, where's the gravy train at? Current and future.

    By overwhelming majority and by landslide victory is the one and only cut and pasty .NET.

    Everything is .NET these days. There are so many free versions of Visual Studio available these days. It does seem like a bit of an ocean though. Have been working in mainly SQL/BI for the last 5 years with only a bit of .NET and I am thinking whether it is worth getting back into .NET again.......

    Depends if you can be arsed delving into stuff they've brought out since, such as Entity Framework, MVC, WPF/XAML, Silverlight.

    Oh, and Team Foundation Server, as Visual Studio and Source Safe just isn't good enough anymore.

    I'm sure there's other new tech M$ are in the process of rolling out too, as all the above is at least a couple of years old now, so a new wheel (to keep the hamsters occupied) needs inventing.

    You're missing Azure from that list and I've heard rumours of a few e-commerce sites moving in that direction.

    No idea where you picked that idea from. Java is the choice of pretty much every financial in the post COBOL age and if you have a certified JEE architects cert it is quids in.

    Most larger places shoot where IBM aim for and that is very dull websphere work but the banks love it and I fill the holes they want filled.
