Microsoft announced this morning that Target's 1400 retail locations are going to run their systems on Microsoft's .NET Framework.  I don't like to make a habit of linking to press releases (the URL wasn't live when I published but should be soon).  But I haven't seen any news items yet.  This is apparently a part of Microsoft's Smarter Retailing Initiative.  According to the release:

....the nation’s second-largest discount general merchandise retailer, will adopt Microsoft® .NET Framework-based technologies within its 1,400 stores in 47 U.S. states. Target will migrate its systems within each store to the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, Windows Server™ 2003 and Microsoft SQL Server™ 2005...

I don't care how you slice it; This is a colossal win for Microsoft.  The Java camp must be seriously smarting today.
