It always seemed odd to me that they tried that... Developers with a Java background learning C# would have a very easy time getting up to speed, and while you could probably import most Java code into J#, you still wouldn't have access to the .jars and classes needed anyway. I had to maintain a webapp done in J# once, and it was painful since I was concurrently upgrading another one in C#.
