you can start with Java . Since you know C++ you must be familiar with Object Oriented Programming concepts and so Java should be easier to learn .

Go for Java. You can command a premium in the market. If you go for .NET then relatively easier to get a project to work on.

yes, you can start with java since its easy to get hold of lots of free software and tools like eclipse, JDK itself, operating system etc...

.NET you can learn later with the help of sponsored company training etc..

Its good to have both Java and .NET expertise on your resume :)
