    @Blue Ink:

    I'm no expert in this, but I think reference counting is also more predictable (latency wise) making it superior memory management method for real time applications. GC performance depends on the GC algorithm, but I never recall seeing a GC that was conclusively proven to be faster than reference counting. One thing GC does have that reference counting does not is the ability to handle circular references though.
