Parent article: Natively compiled Eclipse
Call me a sceptic, but I'd like to see some numbers backing the claim of the GCJ built Eclipse performing better than a JVM.
I don't doubt for a second that the GCJ build starts up faster than any JVM (as the JVM needs to compile the Java code before it can be run), but it would surprize me if GCJ's runtime performance is anywhere near that of any sane JVM.
