Eclipse vs. Cincom Smalltalk
Go here right now. It shows a comparison in sizes of Eclipse vs. Cincom Smalltalk. Funny thing is that he didn't even compare the startup times. Generally, I can open and close a Cincom image 6 times before Eclipse has come up once. Maybe I should should post the startup times for each. Now, that would be interesting...I think we would see the 9x or more slower. Anyway, 9x seems to be the going rate for Smalltalk to Java code size. Go here to see Seaside(A Smalltalk framework) vs. Java. And people wonder why I went back to Smalltalk. My fingers were tired of typing!
