   I've run it, but I haven't done much with it.  It seems to work 
pretty well, but it's not the fastest.  My experiences are with 1.3.1 
on an Indigo2 R10K/195, haven't tried anything newer...things may have 
changed since then.

   I would think that, based on what I saw on the Indigo2, it'd kick all 
sorts of ass on something like an Onyx or an Octane.

   MacOS X is a *great* Java development platform, but it lags behind by 
at least one release.  Their 1.4.1 stuff is just about to hit the 
streets, I've been running the Developer Previews of it with good 
results for a while now.

   Solaris is an excellent platform for this stuff...I'd say the fastest 
I've seen, given enough memory.  It also seems to thread very well.
