Why most large-scale Web sites are not written in Java

There is a lot of information in the blogosphere describing the architecture of many popular sites, such as Google, Amazon, eBay, LinkedIn, TypePad, WikiPedia and others.

I've summarized this issue in a blog post here

most of the time because of stupidity!
Java EE platform is not for site with special algorithm like Google, but sites like linked in run pretty nice on Java EE platform.
take orkut as an example, it was a hobbyist Google employee project turned into a big web site, the architecture had lots of problem, it is famous against users, that they say orkut can not count since it usually shows number of friends wrong!
