But I do agree that eventually, you'll want to go low-level in order to optimize the programming, and not be such a pain on people's computers.

(In my experience, Java is slower than C++, even in the most basic of operations, when they're coded the same way.)

There was a quote once - "Real Java is just as fast as C++ - the only problem is, nobody knows how to code Real Java."
