Re: Baby... Bathwater?

The problem is that there are plenty of people out there in the desktop world who demand performance in their applications. Businesses, for one, who have to keep and eye on throughput, as well as specialists like 3D artists and gamers, both of whom push the envelopes in need of better performance.

Now ask yourself why no one writes a high-performance program in something like Java. Simple, it's like trying to hitch a low-friction wagon to a mule or kitting a race car with a Mini engine. All the performance gets lost in translation.
