I've been away from the Java "scene" since 2002 (when I worked for BEA
deploying J2EE on Linux/390), but assuming you're talking
about "deployed lines of code" or some other real-life measurement, I
find it hard to believe that C# should have exceeded Java.

Almost every newer programming language in the world has gone further
than Fortran, C, Cobol and PL/I, but they're all very much alive and
kicking.  And will each individually probably be able to muster
more "deployed lines of code" than any other language.
