I worked at a large corp where some new manager joined and immediately decided to replace the C/C++ system with Java. His "vision" (or myopia in reality) took 3 years to create, ended up running at 1/4 the speed on the same hardware and used 10x more memory than the system it replaced. It was summarily dumped wasting almost a million quid in development costs and he left before he was kicked out on his arse.
