I *believe* the current carbon vm runs faster because I can abuse
compiler optimizations which aren't perhaps exploited on
the windows compile because the windows vm has concerns about running
on 50 types of intel/amd processors, where as on the
mac the number of intel chip sets used is *much* smaller.
Also didn't pc mag say the fastest windows computer they tested last
year was a macintosh?
Something about Jobs' arm twisting intel into giving him the best
chip sets and hardware engineering if he switch from powerpc to intel?
