well, thats not entirely correct. An empty class (only a main method) starts as fast as releasing the enter key (P4, 3.2). However starting the UI (Swing, et al) takes a bit longer (empty class with a single line like: JOptionPane.showInputDialog("testing");)
approx 2 seconds to start - and 3 to shutdown (!?)

I am also seeing similar times with .net (why is .net never flamed for speed issues??) and I guess this is true with most - all? - VM based languages.

using Java 1.6 on windows btw.
