Well, Java is getting faster. The Java 6 runtime has pretty fast
exicution speeds compared to earlier releases, but it is still primarily
designed for general applications and not so much games. I've used my
fair share of Java apps on Linux such as Star Office, Sun's MS Office
clone, Jpodder, and a few other apps here and there and it works fairly
well with those kinds of programs. However, when I tried creating an
early version of Mysteries of the Ancients in Java it didn't run as well
as it should have. The .NET versions execution times were faster and
more stable thant he Java port. Some of the bugs I could have fixed, but
I wasn't too sure I could resolve the issues with exicution speeds so
abandoned it before I got too far into it.
