in thread Perl 6 is going to get a lot faster in 2013

Parrot has at various times beaten a lot of languages and implementations on various microbenchmarks

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that has been the case for a long time (ie since the removal of the JIT in 2009(?)), and never for any language except PIR.

Rakudo/JVM might or might not work out, but as far as I can tell we already know that Rakudo/Parrot has not.

    As I recall, these were microbenchmarks without the JIT in 2010 and 2011. I don't have that code anymore, so I'm going by memory. They were definitely hand-written PIR code, though.

    If what I recall is true, then you can draw two conclusions. First, performance on a microbenchmark represents little more than performance on a microbenchmark. Second, features aren't free.
