Dear Sir,
Is Java or C# easier for a beginner?I know that the two are very much alike but I would like to hear your opinion.
I am looking forward in hearing from you.


Yours Sincerely,
Antony Liakakis.

Antony,

As you say, the languages are very similar, so I suspect there is not much
difference in terms of ease of learning the language. You may want to think
about other factors such as:

* Do you want your program to be limited to Microsoft platform only?
* What is your preferred IDE? C# comes with Microsoft Visual Studio, with
java there are lots of free or commercial IDEs, or you can just use the
command line tools with the java SDK.
* Java is free, C# costs money.
* Do you need to use any of the extensions that are supported in java, such
as multimedia?
