I personally prefer C#, but way more people know java. So instead of hiring C# developers, they are using their all time devs that most likely know java. It's just more widely used. Also the fact that Java is multiplatform plays a role.

There are complete Java IDEs for all major OS, some of them Open Source, while there's only one for C# (Visual Studio), closed source and only available for MS Windows users. I think migrating from Java to C# could need a good investment in MS licenses.
