I heard a kid complaining about Java being slow yesterday. People remember their first experiences for a long, long time after they stop being true.

Well, Java is slow. The JVM startup times are what people notice.

You're assuming he was making a nuanced argument and not just flashing gang signs.

This kid had a slow experience with Java a long, long time ago?

He's 19 and been programming for one year.
