I hope the Java programmers out there are taking notice and will use this to help improve performance and lower memory usage.

I'm not pointing any fingers mind...

I am by no means bashing Java, but I am honestly amazed that these additions are recent given how old the platform is (12 years?).

That being said, HotSpot is fairly...well, hot. .Net has some decent free profiling tools, but none of them look like they have the capabilities that HotSpot has.

The article is written now. Articles as these are trying to get back some hype to Java.

Though I admit java needs some improvements in memory area but after using some .Net apps and Adobe speed Demons(TM) and anti-virus,anti-spyware ...anti-Evil-in-your-face,etc on Windows,I barely notice any sluggishness:-).
Having said that,Java apps do stick out in linux (with its metal looks) than in Windows,but with plethora of different widgets/looks on Windows,peoples usually do not complain like their linux counterparts.Before shooting on my head take a look at opensuse.org where they are touting their 1+ year effort on gtk+ frontend of Yast where a perfectly qt frontend existed from the beginning.I can say the same about kde-apps.org where cheap knock-offs of Windows Media/Photo(ManDVD,ManSlide etc) are the highest rated apps.
Can we please take our head out the cleavage?
