Response to: I can't believe this

in fact in this entire thread we can see the old arguments:

C is better than Java
Java people are idiots who get off on how cool Java is
PHP is better than Java
Java is too complex to use
I've been in IT for 20 years and I know.....

at least .NET didn't come up

how many years will this go on?

why do people say these things - it just reduces the value of any such forum

    you are all rookies. you are all aguing about CPU cycles (someone mentioned C). CPU cycles is not the goal in scalability. is an opitimised assembler app serving a fictitious figure of 1000 pages at once scalable? no, because how do you then serve 2000?

    assume slow technology A cans server 100 pages at once. assume faster technology B servers 200 pages at once. A is given more overhead so that it can serve 50 pages simulaneously on seperate servers. A is run on 10 servers, thus serving 50 * 10 = 500 pages at once. A is more scalable than B.
