Default What Crack-head thought up Javas version numbers?

We had Java 1.0, then Java 1.1, okay so far... Then we get Java 1.2, but they also started to call it "Java 2". Then we get Java 1.3 which is also called "Java 2" and 1.4 which is also called "Java 2". Then we get 1.5, but then Sun decides to refer to it as "Java 5", and now "Java 6". However internally everything is still "1.5" and "1.6" for some compatibility reason.

Who has been smoking the wacky weed?

Depends on how multi-platform you want it to be.

However C# applications do run faster on Windows then Java, so Java 1.6 is a great speed improvement in my opinion.

I also like Java's Documentation better, and I think it is slightly cleaner.

Java's performance really ain't that bad anymore, especially once you tweak your jvm to get the garbage collector under some semblance of control.

C# ties you to windows and microsoft development tools.

Well, this helps to run .NET on Linux:

You can run .NET CF on Windows Mobile devices too.

Java has its place too, but, .NET is very comfortable for the programmer.
