In what way do you feel C# is significantly different than Java?

As near as I can figure, those who find Python has significant
advantages for many applications over Java and C++ will likely
feel the same way about C#, only more so.  Isn't it basically
a highly MS-centric remake of Java, but missing the very
cross-platform nature which has served Java (and Python) best?
