Managed code will never be as fast as close to the metal native. Managed code lives because of abstraction concepts, and abstraction equals cost.

ok so managed can only be 98% - and 99% of the time that last 2% is not even a blip on the radar!

honestly i think that for *most* apps managed is plenty fast unless the app is poorly written or is extreemly crtitical - like some core OS code.

most of the time when folks think it's slow etc... it's from bad code or not understanding how it really works.
