Why I should use AppCode over XCode 4?

This is no way to be a an offensive topics, just want to know and make things clear, probably I am not alone so please shed the light :)
1. What are benefits of using AppCode over XCode, if You still need to have and install XCode?
2. Why should i prefer much slower Java aplication over native one?
3. As probably this Application won't be free, why shoud i pay for it if everything(mostly probably) already exists in XCode and I paid for it already?
4. If starting a new application size like this one, why it is still slow - I mean SLOW Java, and not native, or at least QT ?

Thank's in advance!

Hello Juris,

If you already have such a strong opinion about AppCode, what's the point
in asking these questions? There's not much chance that we could overcome
such a prejudice against our product; you should just use XCode.

For the record, it's not true that Java applications are always slower than
native ones, and it's not true that everything in AppCode also exists in
XCode.

A better response probably would have focused on the benefits of AppCode and not offense at the question. Because if you can't list the benefits - including refactoring support, deep and mature IDE and editing functionality, etc. - you have a problem in selling the product when it's released.
