Yes, several thousand people saw a very impressive demo of HotSpot at JavaOne. A Java application using HotSpot performed 150% faster than an identitical application in C++. Both applications created and destroyed 10 million objects. The Java application finished in 2.2 seconds, while the C++ application took 5.5 seconds. Since Java is a true OO language, this is a telling and important demo.
