Uhm.... my personal comments

- .NET 3.5 is stable, just like jBPM 3.2.3 is stable... or JDK 1.5.0_02 is stable. If you would have said .NET is stable, then it is a different thing (4 releases in?). The jBPM API has not changed that much in the last 2 years, so I'd say it is quite stable. 

>From your statement I cannot determine where persistence and thread synchronization (aren't they two only partly related things?) are more robust in MS Workflow then in jBPM. The latter uses Hibernate which is really robust. The relation with Rich Clients is totally unclear to me, since jBPM can be used in stand-alone, pure web or rich client implementations. If you could elaborate a little more, I can try to comment.

Comparing the MS Workflow 'platform' to jBPM is imo comparing apples to grapes (not even oranges). I think you should include SEAM, JBossTools etc... to have a real comparison (I do not know the details of MS Workflow)

So even with my basic knowledge of MS Workflow, I have to say you statement of 'superiour' is a bold statement and needs more detailed arguments (yes, I'm biased, but I get the feeling you are to ;-) )
