"Not to mention the fact that JS (compiled or not) will never out perform Objective C / .NET

Android apps are Java based, not JS (javascript) based.
I know but Android has f--k all to do with this thread. However WebOS (which is the platform we're discussing) /DOES/ use JS.

Java apps are compiled, not interpreted.

Actually they're both. They're compiled to byte code that then gets interpreted by the Java Virtual Machine

.NET is also compiled and runs also in a virtual machine.

Yes, .NET is also byte code. Thanks for pointing out something we all ready knew.

Speed wise, I saw C and C++ apps running faster than Objective C.

That would be down to shoddy programming then as your point is as nonsensical as arguing that C apps run faster than C++.
