I can back that up with my own personal experience. Java software and C#/.NET too will show unexpected and very annoying pauses whenever the GC is required to run. C or C++ software, even Perl and Python software never demonstrated this erratic behavior.
Yet Perl and Python employ garbage collection. My point was that blanket statements about GC extrapolated from specific implementations of specific platforms don't inform the discussion, but I'm pretty sure that this is a replay of a previous discussion, anyway, fuelled by the same prejudices, of course.
