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

I think any .NET implementation has a much shorter turn around time for
development because there are so many tools available that make it such that
rapid development is trivial at best. .NET is easier, which is why there are
more ,NET developers than Java developers. Java on the other hand is a great
language no doubt, but the turn around time is much slower, at least in my
experience, and quite frankly I have yet seen it to be any faster than .NET.
I am sure there are many benchmarks that would say otherwise. It comes down
to personal preference in my opinion. I do think that Java if it has an edge
may be able to keep up with  mono because of the fact that SUN has opened
its source, which may allow for a more rapid advancement in Java than in the
past when it was solely under the auspices of SUN.
