In This interview Heinz Kabutz the Java Specialist points out something I learned from Mike Cowlishaw, the inventor of the REXX language ... optimizing for today's environment may really suck in tomorrow's environment. Write the most straightforward code you can and give the compiler the chance to optimize.

Great article, highly recommended to all programmers, especially those who think they have a clever route to "high performance."

I found the same article independently, and would concur that it is a good article. Not just the performance stuff, either.
