Java can be used with .net. as well as c#. You just use the appropriate compiler to create the output files for the CLR (kinda like a JVM) to read.

If you learn java, learning c# will take you maybe a couple of hours - they are REALLY similar.
C# ONLY works with .Net (at least for now). Java works all over the place.
Just my humble opinion.

Hello,
To toot the Java horn a bit...
Java is a nice language for learning. It's language is relatively simple and Java has removed some of the buggy aspects of previous languages. C# brings some of those potentially confusing aspects back in.
And to reiterate what Cindy said a bit, once you know Java, to learn C# (or some other similar language) is a lot less work (a breeze even).
Plus, with Java you have wonderful communities to support your studies - like JavaRanch!
Good Luck,
-Dirk Schreckmann

One of the nice things too is that Java is established. .NET isn't. Java is proven and has been around for quite some time.
