      Microsoft launched C# to compete with Java. But C# failed in that. Microsoft tell us that C# had just 1.8 million developers. Poor compared with Java's 9-10 million developers.

      VB.NET was far worse, with just 180,000 developers at its peak. Poor compared with VB6's 6.1 million.

      And now C# and VB.NET are both declining.

      Just like Microsoft lost web developers to JavaScript (and node.js) and mobiles to iOS and Android they are now losing what is left of desktops too.
