You obviously do not live in the same planet as me. Most people do not
want to change languages, that is, Fortran -> C in most scientific /
technical codes. Most people do not want even to change their
code. Most people do not even know there is an -O flag in their
compiler. They just want to run their code FAST. Ergo, the compilers,
languages, operating systems, and the hardware must live to server.
BTW: a great speedup.
