Our company uses both Java and VW Smalltalk. Java is way slower[...]
I have my complaints about Smalltalk, but speed isn't one of them.In my opinion S# with the many different heaps toi support different object lifetimes seems
to have the finest VM anyway.
Just to be curious:
a description of the "phonecode" example solutions measured in C# and C++, unfortunately not including S#,
(well, lets say) "proving" C# being 37 times slower for that problem.
It would be nice to have a broader comparison like http://www.hack.org/mc/texts/prechelt2.pdf ( from 2000 ),
and, to prove my (pre)conception of S#'s VM, including S# code of course.
