Salon.com article
It's better to train programmers to write efficient code than to depend on new programming languages to do it for them.

For desktop application I will go to my lovely easy and quick VB
I worked only once in VB.
Working on V/C++ I think will remain my dream.

This is Meaningless Drivel. No discussions relating to Java will be tolerated!

Apparently Jason, you didn't read the article. It is the epitomy of Meaningless Drivel.

You have to wonder about someone who relies on Salon.com for their information about programming!

The example he was talking on the site might be:
A program in the windows to make microsoft windows' windows.
The biggest lies in the CS is benchmark along with Quicksort, FP operation, gcc, etc. If one still doubt, consult with hannesy peterson's Computer Systems Organization.
It seems like java has more bright future than vb or microsoft driven mfc stuffs since "the technologies" working for the NET doesn't want to persuade the programmer. It seems he doesn't have right education about os level instructions or doesn't know about the lie of benchmarking.
The benchmakring really depends on the systems's library, processors' instruction, kernel, and the COMPILER'S lookup LIBRARY.
What if they test the sample programm runnig with win3.1 dos system using visual Basic and jdk1.4 on Redhat 8?
Or WinXP using C# and PDP-DEC using java 1 doesn have enough library and tons of bugs?
Why do they create another Virtual Machine and MS Java if they think so stupid. it's a joke. Do you still like to play with hell-DLL problem? go for VB6. not Fake Java .NET.
The alogrithm for garbage collection improves more and more as long as sun guys don't take a nap during working day time. It surely does. Having been debugging memory leak related destructor problem only enough to use java over c++.
The guy was right at one point. The language does not matter. The algorithm matters. so, operating systems does not matter. the structure does matter.
Using wine or VMware, guess running using VB code or MFC driven VC++?
The other factor is the performance of the compiler for GCC is a lot faster than MFC. Why don't they use gcc instead of sluggish proprietary mfc.
here is one example of simeple lie:
