XML parsers have come quite a way. Some of the newer implementations (esp. MSXML4, IIRC) can achieve astonishing results. XML Pull Parsers are also very good, depending on your application.

Saying "XML processing is very slow" is somewhat like saying "intermediaries are evil"; it depends. And I'd note that his product - an XML accelerator - could be the reason that he's saying XML is so slow ;)
