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.

"But IMHO the NT microkernel is better then the monolithic linux kernel."

The NT kernel is not a microkernel and the Linux kernel is not monolithic. They're both hybrid kernels with varying degrees of modularity.
