I just foolishly got caught in a You-Tube discussion on Java vs C performance. Foolish because You-Tube comments are a lousy way to present anything and because it's hard to keep the level of discourse scholarly. And foolish especially for me because I've had this discussion so many times and it always comes out the same way... so here's my attempt at distilling my arguments into something I can point people the *next* time I get caught in this silly discussion.

Managed languages are not faster than C. And trying to bend everything to fit around your investment in those languages won't change those facts. I just don't get this obsession. Oh well.
