Java was developed from the ground up to be verified and it does the job darn well. I'm starting to see benchmarks where it goes toe to toe with C, once you are done with JITting the code. It's well proven and platform-independent. Please, Google, let's stick with something that is already working. And, of course, if you want to spend time and money making Java run faster, that would not be evil.
