Answers:

Not exactly. Like Java, .NET includes a run-time environment that provides a number of important developer services, such as garbage protection. And yes, C#--an object oriented, C-like programming language similar to Java--is the preferred language for .NET development. But Java isn't the first object-oriented C-like language, and it certainly isn't the first developer tool to offer a run-time environment (indeed, Microsoft has used a run-time environment for Visual Basic for almost a decade, beginning well before Java was invented).

Also, .NET offers three critical advantages over Java: First, it allows the programmer to use any compatible programming language, compared to the one (Java) that the Java environment allows. Secondly, .NET applications and services are fully compiled, unlike Java applications and services, so they offer much better performance. And finally, critical portions of .NET--including the CLR and the C# programming language--have been opened as international standards. Despite promises, Java's inventor--Sun Microsystems--has constantly reneged on its Java standardization efforts. This standards-based approach will eventually see .NET ported to operating systems other than Windows.
