In an interview to CNet News.com Novell's VP of development, Miguel de Icaza, founder of Linux GNOME project, talks about resource efficiency when comparing ASP.NET with J2EE: "We did a study at Ximian when we were trying to find customers for Mono. We found that people said that it was 25% more efficient to build in ASP.Net, because they have to do all this academic crap (with J2EE). Microsoft later funded a similar study and they came up with 30%. We interviewed about 25 customers about why would you buy Mono, why not J2EE, and we came up with that."
