Im my opinion this is just spreading prejudices. I seriously doubt that Java is 
much slower then Objective C. Have a look at:


Objective C is not in the list but I doubt that Objective C would be much 
faster then Java if you actually use Objective C and not just a plain C subset. 
And Scala also runs on the JVM and is also quite fast and it is a very nice, 
modern language which is not clumsy at all.

C++ with a good library like Qt (which is LGPL now) offers many of the 
advantages of Objective C. In addition it is possible to program both abstract 
and fast in C++, which is not possible in Objective C. Just try to write an 
efficient and easy to use vector class in Objective C (not using plain C). I 
doubt that you can get it really performant.

That being said, Objective C is a nice language and I do not say it is not a 
good alternative for server side programming. I just do not like people 
spreading prejudices which are basically wrong.
