If you've ever gotten involved in the Java vs. .NET debate (and who hasn't) check out N. Alex Rupp's blog.  He's a dyed-in-the-wool Java guy who's going to TechEd this week and talking with .NET developers and INETA people about what they like about .NET.  He has some very interesting things to say about the Java developer - .NET developer relationship.  A very fair and unbiased look at the issues and how the communities interact internally and externally.

It's very refreshing to see someone being so open and honest about the pros and cons of both platforms.  (And it pretty courageous, given the longstanding antagonisms, for him to not only go to TechEd, but to advertise his Java-guy-ness.)
