the answer is not it depends, the answer is yes. Performance is not a time measured execution in a bubble there are people tools and process and cost involved in software.

Java wins in the capability/human unit metric even if it is slower in raw performance terms.

Nope. java is sometimes faster, because most (i don't know *any*) C Compilers do not optimize based on profiling data collected during the first runs. There are examples in the blog.
