Hi Ashwin,

C# is syntactically same as C++ (similar to Java).
It is backed by Microsoft's .NET technology and has many advantages over Java. Graphics in C# is far better/faster than Java. It has the capability and extension of COM also.

Currently none of the organization has announced usage of C# for its commercial development/research. May be some of the Research Institutes have started exploring that.
