Today I spoke a collegue of mine who is one of the people who are following Java technology and interest at our company. He told me that interest in Java is very much decreasing, only a few of our customers are interested in Java. We are developing embedded software and working mostly in the Netherlands and some other European countries like Germany. Most of them are starting to change to Microsoft products. In automotive industry for example manufacturers are turning to the Car.NET environment and using Windows CE in their systems. In telecom industry manufacturers are also turning to .NET.
How is the state of Java in your country and perhaps your branche?
(Note that this thread is about which language is most used and will, in your opinion, be used more in your country and/or branch. It is not about which is better. ;-))
