It is easy to spot performance issues with micro-benchmarks, and we
typically use these to do some of our development work.

For large applications it is harder to find out what pieces are
performance issues in the runtime, and which others are operating system

For instance, even if our runtime produces slower code, ASP.NET
applications benefit from Linux's TCP/IP and file system async semantics
so overall, we come on top in many benchmarks.

Quoting `applications that do "real" work' without pointing to them is
