Just about the only certainty you'll get is that -whatever it is now- it will be different in the future.

is this true?

Never heard of that company; is it a reputable outfit without an agenda of their own?

Agreed. Any developer worth his/her salt will be using whatever technology that is right for the job. And should know many technologies to be able to make that judgement call.

.NET is actually pretty cool. Unfortunately, I don't see it used much among my clients. But... when / if it does, I will be ready.

.NET and Java seem like two separate, parallel worlds. I recently spoke to a few Microsoft developers. They asked me "Java? Is that used much? We see a lot of .NET jobs, but it seems like there aren't many Java jobs." My own experience is exactly the opposite - I see a lot of Java jobs and only rarely a company that uses .NET.

The majority of the world's business applications are written in COBOL. About 80% I would say, so to not include COBOL in a discussion about enterprise applications is a bit strange.

What I thought is, from the last decade (since late 90's) enterprise applications' market is captured by Java and .Net

Java taught me to be ready for learning any new programming technology. I doubt I would have been in the same mindset had I been a .NET developer all these years.
