This may not be the answer you are looking for, but one of the features which distinguishes a really professional software developer is breadth of knowledge. I recommend that you investigate both the technologies you have mentioned and form your own opinions.
Having said that, this is a Java message board, and I think that most users here would be in favour of a Java/Servlet/JSP solution.
It's important to realize that for all Microsoft's dominance of the workstation market, it has only a minor presence in servers. When writing enterprise-level server systems, it is much more important to be able to seamlessly upgrade the hardware to whichever "big-iron" vendor is currently at the top of the performance list than to be Microsoft-compatible. Server-side solutions written in Java will work on all the major server platforms, including Linux, Microsoft, HP, Sun, IBM, Compaq etc.

Servlet technology has tremendous momentum at this time. Naturally we are all interested to see what MS comes up with in dotNET but MS is only a small part of the server market and Java runs on so many different servers.
C# is so similar to Java that you should have no trouble switching between C# and Java depending on what the customer wants.

The linux os is growing fast, and its a statistical trend.
Linux is about 33% of the server os market ahead of windows
and unix individually. Also Apache is about 65% of the webserver
market. So linux and Apache are the most popular server os and webservers in the world ( because they are free! )
Now what does this have to do with java? java is 100% free to
use and download!
Now Java is works with apache and linux and linux now comes
with a java tool kit !
PS: According to the Gardner group: Java is the most popular programming lang.! uses java // babbages online computer games also uses java
I did have a list of a ton of java sites but I do not know
which of my 100 floppies is it on.

If I remember correctly...there isn't going to be a seperate IDE for they have for Visual Basic and Visual C++...
So in order to develop in C# you need to have Visual Studio available to you. SO..its free to learn and develop Java...and over $1000.00 to learn and develop C#..
Correct me if I am wrong please =)
I agree. Here's the link:
