Just like to point out that Java, on a server, isn't interpreted code. It's dynamically profiled and compiled code.

Which should yield much better performance and memory utilization then either interpreted or just compiled code. At a cost of a larger minimum memory size to implement. Sun recommends a minimum of 2G of Ram.

    What? You seriously think Java is faster than compiled code? OK, you solve a problem in Java, and I'll solve it in C.

    Java might be comparable to PHP, but I don't see it ever competing with C in terms of performance alone. That isn't what it was designed for.
