Thanks for the response. Since posting the question, I've read a later
column where he seems to get a lot more technical:
Regarding the portability issue, I'd say he pretty much conceded and
greatly toned down his conclusinos, although he didn't write in an
Regarding performance of Java versus C#, he also backs way off:
Whether C# will beat Java (or more precisely whether C#'s compiled
version beat Java's compiled "bytecode") remains to be seen.
He goes on to say that he thinks C# could be faster precisely beause
it doesn't have to be portable (a claim that I think is pretty
dubious), but he ends with "So I'd bet C# will be faster, but for now
that's just a bet." A very wesk statement compared to what he
He throws in "When Quake 4 comes out in Java, let me know." And when
it comes out in C#, I hope Cringely will let us know.
Has anyone on this list tried one of the "batch" "static" "whole
