[Mono-list] Mono C# versus Java 6 -server performance

I have recently been part of a discussion with colleagues about the
merits of C# versus Java. I am of the opinion that C# is a superior
language, but my colleagues questioned whether the performance is
comparable on Linux (which is what we use here at EBI).
I had a look on the Language Shootout, comparing Mono 1.2.5 with Java 6
In almost all the benchmarks Mono C# was significantly slower than Java 6.
I downloaded some of the benchmarks to see if I could reproduce the
results on my machine (Mono JIT compiler version 18.104.22.168 / Java 6). The
results were the same. Twiddling with mono / mcs flags didn't seem to
make a difference.
I was wondering if anyone had any insights in to why this is, whether it
is a CIL/C# issue or is specific to the Mono implementation, and whether
there are any plans to bring Mono performance in line with Java performance.
Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not
sure about the the universe.
