Microsoft improved Java, so Sun sued them. The end result is that Microsoft, who already had .NET, simply changed J# to C# and made a better language.

Sun went out of business. Too much spent on lawyers and being anti-MS instead of innovating and working together. Same with Netscape.

MS has had no effect on how Java evolved, except that Sun, and now Oracle, started copying C# and trying to catch up.

MS had .NET and VB.NET in development before the lawsuits. Since in .NET, languages are syntactic sugar over the MSIL, adding languages like C# was not a tough stretch.
