Now Sun's JVM is a beautiful thing! And it is
Sun's JVM that will
take hardware customers from IBM to Sun. For the same money, Sun's
JVM running on Solaris and Sun hardware will outperform the
corresponding offering from IBM -- I reckon. And IBM knows it too.
My conclusion: IBM are telling fibs, really obvious ones too.
I'm not so sure about the current state of affairs but certainly in JDK
1.3 days IBM's JVM and Jikes compiler were often quoted as being faster
and better than Sun's respectively.
