You're asking this on a Java forum? And without any of the project details?

Yeah, this vote isn't going to be biased at all..

C#, just to be different.

The syntax between the two languages, as well as their speeds, is almost completely equivalent. The libraries are the only difference.

I disagree with you. Java is more mature than C# (especially the garbage collector and the JIT compiler), more platform independent (Mono may cause some legal issues, it is not a solution...) and a bit faster (watch the Quake2 version rewritten in C# and compare it with Jake2 if you don't believe me). If you target computers (and maybe not only under Windows) and/or mobile phones (except IPhone), I advise you to use Java. If you target XBOX 360, rather use C#.

Their syntaxes are very close, you can use OpenGL both in C# and in Java (JOGL is faster than Tao Framework and any other existing OpenGL bindings in C# for the moment). Maybe you would like to use XNA..

I vote for JAVA of course...

Java or C#?

Pick one, master it - switch later, when it makes sense.

You're right that Java is much more mature, but in my experience the difference remains mostly irrelevant. However I would never want to develop only for Windows so there's a big reason to do it in Java.

Also I think it's really funny that C# is tied with Java right now. I'm assuming it's because people are joking at the absurdity of the question in this forum.

Definitely Java!

Of course, I havent used c#, haven't seen or read a reason to do.

I think the ones voting for C# are just saying you should be a well rounded developer. If you've tried Java, why not try C# next time. Should make it easier and more confident when you make the decision to come back to Java Wink

I think most who voted C# (like me) just think that this pool makes no sense. Thats like asking: "Should I buy a pizza tomorrow?" completely out of context... Those kind of decisions are requirement driven not poll driven.

why do you program java then?

I have never tried C# bu tI have heard it is very similar to java.

if it is cross-platform then I dont have a care.

P.S: still voted for java though Grin

C# is quite cross-platform thanks to the Mono project but it cannot be compared to Java as using Mono can cause some legal issues (a programming team leader confirmed it recently when I spoke to him about .NET and Java, he has needed a cross-platform language to program on AIX, Linux and Windows, he has chosen Java) and Microsoft does not really behave like Sun Microsystems, the official .NET framework works only under Windows as far as I know whereas the JDK 1.6 works both under Linux, Solaris and Windows (under Mac, there is the Apple's JDK).

Yeah I voted C# to be ironic like DzzD, even though I'm probably one of the only people in here who has extensively used both languages. I don't post on any C# forums, I also don't know of the existence of any because I've never looked. I really despise Microsoft as an organization. So what would I really choose? What would anybody in the Java Gaming community choose?

I think most C# votes are all about absurdity.
