Re: [xml-dev] Speed in Languages and Browser Architectures

I am amazed that folks who consider themselves computer professionals 
would say things like "always" when talking about performance.  For 
example, I'd expect that a JVM in hardware (or with a hardware assist) 
would run faster than a conventional machine running C.  Even trying to 
cover yourself by saying "well, I was assuming conventional hardware" 
doesn't make it -- what hardware, what software?  What application?  What 
does the XML look like?  Would base64 decoding help (e.g., most 
xml-dsig's)?  There's just too much variation out there.

Performance comparisons are very hard to do correctly and must be properly 

  I assert that folks making blanket assertions should reconsider their 
claims. :)
