Why are people so afraid of Java? I came across a post on the cms-list mailing list that I found quite disturbing. This guy was looking for a Content Management System written in PHP because "java is s...l...o...w..."? Where did he get this from? Has he ever tried a java app before? [Rick Salsa via Anthony Eden]

This always amuses me. "Java is slow because it's a byte-code interpreted language with JIT compilation. So use [foo], which is a fully interpreted scripting language!"
