Sun Studio wins Infoworld award in Application Performance category
By vtatkar on May 22, 2008
Sun Studio came out on top in the application performance category in the recently rated in a new IDE survey by Infoworld (here).
NetBeans is rated lower than Sun Studio (on which the SunStudio IDE is based), which is a surprise. Also surprising is the absence of Eclipse in the list, which the article explains in a very unsatisfactory way, IMO.
I'm just glad that it is being noticed that we -Sun Studio compilers- produce good overall application performance. Someone saying ITS BEST really helps.
FYI, IBM's Rational IDE came up on top overall. I'm sure the survey is not without bias, as the comments it has attracted seem to indicate.
