How Good Is J#?
First off I know that J# isn't really java.
I recently installed Windows XP, primarily for .net development, and have been using J# for a couple weeks now. (Have recently begun to study C# a little, the syntax appears to be almost exactly the same.)
But, can anyone with some experience with J# tell me how if this is a good java alternative for .net?
Should I perhaps go with C# for windows development?

I don't have much experience in J#. But it's quite good alternative for Java. MS people really developed that for people who has experience in Java and need to move into .Net. So that mainly they want to keep it as an alternative. So all what you've done on VM in developing now has to do on .Net

Most of my programming in actual Java, in done in Linux, and it is easy to create .jars and shell scripts to execute multiple class files, however in windows, the desired result of a compiled program is a .exe binary, this appears to be rather hard to do with true Java, so I have been playing around with J# which uses the great visual studio IDE, and creates .exe, but sadly J# seems to lake many of Javas great features.
C# is also a Java-like language and by what I've seen, it's quite powerful and fun.
Thanks for your help Eranga, I checked a few other sites, for code samples etc, and like you said, C# seems to be the better Java alternative for windows development.
Read the Wikipedia article on J# to know whether it is being supported or not.

Honestly, I don't see more power in C# (actually in .Net) comparing with Java. In the framework there are millions of points to stuck in with, in different cases.
When comes to the VS IDE, yeah it's quite good. Specially for the deployment process, msi packaging is really interesting. You can easily play with registry and shortcuts and so on.
