Cease fire in the OS wars?

Microsoft .Net and J2EE coexist nicely

In the so-called “platform wars,” Microsoft .Net and Java 2 Enterprise Edition have roughly equal market share and will continue to coexist, said Brian Lyons, chief technology officer of Number Six Software Inc. of Arlington, Va. “I was really surprised by how split the marketplace is,” he said.

Lyons contrasted the two Web services platforms yesterday at a conference sponsored by the National Capital Chapter of the Association for Information and Image Management.

The Office of Management and Budget has recommended that agencies choose one of the two for their e-government business initiatives and technology reference models.
