"Open-Source implementations available for distribution in the US ...", you mean?
Re: Java's way of preventing extra costs
Couldn't agree more!
I have also come to the conclusion that development time and maintainability is often more important than running performance.
Development speed and maintainability are Java's great strengths. This (I think) outweights Java being so slow.
I would like to know what you think:
Is Java so much better developing in than it is slower?
Also, do you have any experience with how gcc-java executables performs compared to running in a JVM?
