I don't mean to be obsessive/compulsive about this, but I have to be certain.  

I mention to people that Java is pretty much as fast as C++ nowadays, and I get the following responses.

1. "Oh, they took care of the little endian/big endian problem?"

I wasn't aware of the problem, I assume what is meant is speed lost due to little endian/big endian conversion.

2. "Benchmarks can be manipulated anyway you want"

3. "JIT compilers still build bytecode.  How can it be as fast as C++?"
