Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y In this article .NET 2.0 won 2 out of the 3 major tests clearly besting Java 1.5 in both execution speed and real-world memory efficiency. Java did, however, manage to hold its own in the native types memory comparison by a pretty wide margin. This indicates that on the whole .NET is a more efficient platform, with perhaps at least one area for improvement native type memory efficiency.

"Since it looks like these benchmarks ended up .NET's favor, how we can expect at least 80 comments explaining exactly how and why thest tests were biased in favor of .NET."

All benchmarks are biased one way or the other. Just like statistics, benchmarks is a great vehicle for "proving" your point.
