A remark by DumpsterDoofus on StackExchange let me have a look at "The Julia Language". The homepage contains a table, which compares Julia against various computer languages amongst them Mathematica. The text above the table refers to the site with the .nb-file that was used for the comparison. The code is terrible and by no means appropriate for Mathematica.
It is definitely not the first time I have seen such comparisons but this one is particularly annoying. Maybe somebody wants to have a go and make the test more Mathematica-like.
Ernst, I don't know much about Julia, but I thought it had a Mathmatica component?
I know Julia has linked to Mathmatica
