I obviously (like many others) don't have infinitely deep pockets to run a small cluster of mainframes that Java needs to achieve those levels of performance that you're implying.

But hey, what the hell, these days it's the taxpayer who bails out banks and other financial institutions, no wonder nobody gives a shit how much the IT infrastructure costs (amongst other things...).
