No, it's not new. Fowler's a respected commentator, though, and it's
good to get his fresh take on a topic. I don't always agree with him but
I think he's way more often right than he's wrong, and I've rarely read
anything by him that I'd dismiss out of hand.

That was uncalled-for. I assure you the information and ideas I presented are
both well grounded and intended to serve you. Why such a psychotic reaction to
a technical discussion?

It's a rhetorical question. I'm done with you. Buh-bye.

Honi soit qui mal y pense.

Claiming that that qualitative a Java app is slower on X
than on Y can when X is in general slower than Y can be
abbreviated to "". It provides no real information.
