That's not quite true.  There is additional overhead in running things
like gc and runtime checks that C doesn't do.  If you want pure
performance, you're going to do better with C code.  The reasons for
using java or C# or whatever have nothing to do with performance, but
can rather be justified by saying that the performance is not hurt very
much, or that the faster development times outweigh the runtime
performance problems.

In the real world, the performance impact is quite small.  But it is
incorrect to say that they will run equally fast.
