Those irritating "Is Java dead?" articles.

I have read quite a few discussion boards online which talk about Java being dead and lot of *JAVA* programmers are being laid off and therefore *Java* the language is no longer the *hot*
thing it used to be just a year ago. What people don't realize is the rapid adoption of the language by companies that resulted in lot of Java jobs. If companies
were not using Java there would not be so many laid off Java
programmers in the first place. Also people are being laid off their *jobs* and not *java jobs*. It just so happens that they were programming in Java when they had their job.
What is even more amusing is the rumor that .NET and CSharp are
gaining ground? Last time I did a search for CSharp jobs on MONSTER.COM I landed with "0" records. I am not sure what facts these people who base their articles on.
Is there any truth to these rumors?

After reading this I went to Dice and did a boolean search for "'C Sharp' or 'C#'". I got a total of four posts (out of 30000+) that mentioned it anywhere in the job description.

C# is currently in the same state that Java was back in 96. I don't believe there will be any serious development for a couple more years.
