comment What language has integrated “list insertion” as part of code *syntax*?
Haha it's a bit of a stretch to define SQL as a "programming language". As a query DSL, maybe :-)

comment How to significantly improve Java performance?
@maaartinus: regarding final some JITs might figure it out, others might not. It's implementation dependent (as are many performance tuning tips). Agree about the allocations - you have to benchmark this. Usually I've found it is better to eliminate allocations, but YMMV.

comment Is it legal to imitate how an API looks?
I believe this is on-topic as it is clearly a factor that must be considered in API design. A good answer could easily outline the general legal issues without going into the specifics of every jurisdiction.

comment Which programming languages are multi-platform, fast, and object-oriented with non-limiting low-level os access?
@Florian - You are seriously misinformed. Scala is 100% compiled. In fact it typically gets compiled twice: first from source to JVM bytecode, and then JIT-compiled to native code. Clojure is the same.
