Java runtime is a bloat. But its processes are natively multi-threaded and
can serve multiple apps from the same server. So, one Java process should
probably be compared with about 5-10 Rails processes in terms of RAM
footprint. It's still a bloat.

Even better, why are people complaining about the memory footprint of

Not guilty. In this thread, I am complaining about Mongrel's memory
footprint, not "Hello, World"'s. :)
Besides, I'm not even complaining, just trying to understand the ins and
outs of this stack, and what can or cannot be squeezed out of it.

By the way, I hope load balancing solutions are not off-topic? :)
