Why use Weblogic? Why use Java? Microsoft Products is better.

One of the colleagues of Network Dept. asks me why you use Weblogic, Why use Java? The products of Microsoft are better, easy to learn and are user friendly.
I tell him because Microsoft is against of Open Source. But I want to tell him more about Java vs. .Net and IIS vs. Apache, Tomcat, Jboss and Weblogic. Do you have any content?

Note the important difference: .NET(Microsoft) is a product strategy, whereas J2EE(Java) is a standard

Taken from :

Another good one:
some info that i found in the web...

If the Java vs. .NET debate is only a matter of platform bias, what can you expect down the road as .NET rolls out of early adopter stage?
Member *bayard* suggests that
C# will dominate client development efforts and Java will continue to rule the server-side. "C# and .NET will replace Java, on the client. They make sense there, as it's rare to care about non-Windows clients. But to replace EJB with .NET seems a mistake, .NET is the newcomer here, and to replace JSP with ASP seems a poor choice unless you're stuck with lots of VB coding Web designers. Architecture of the future is destined to be C# applications talking to Java servers. That way the [Microsoft] dominance on the client and continuing [Microsoft] weakness on the server can both be fulfilled.”
It is not a matter of which one is better or worse both have their advantages and disadvantages. .NET is centered around a single vendor while J2EE is an open specification with several other vendors implementing it (Red-Hat/JBoss, BEA, IBM, Oracle, Sun, Macromedia etc) therefore you are not stack with one vendor. Plus there are literally hundreds of thousands of open source projects and libraries in Java and this gives you a tremendous amount over Microsoft. You don't like one, ok you have a choice to go to another while you Microsoft you are stuck. You like it or not you have to use it.

Plus, Java is more mature than .NET, it is older and thus it is more advanced and sophisticated in terms of speed and language semantics.

Personally I do not think you have to bother explaining why Java is better or worse. You like it more, you have a wider choice of tools and vendors and this is enough for you to use it.
