Java Programmers agonize over whether to allocate on the stack or on the heap. Some people think garbage collection will never be as efficient as direct memory management, and others feel it is easier to clean up a mess in one big batch than to pick up individual pieces of dust throughout the day. This article pokes some holes in the oft-repeated performance myth of slow allocation in JVMs.

"And Microsoft Office is better than ThinkFree..."

ThinkFree is almost as fast as Microsoft Office. And it costs $45 instead of $300 for Office 2003 Standard.

But that's not the point. The point is that it is an example where a similar application written in C++ performs far worse than one written in Java. So your argument is void.
