One Of The Fast Becomes One Of The Free

JRockit is a high performance Java Virtual Machine. It’s designed for people running server side software (as so many are these days) using Java. BEA purchased the company and is now making it available for free for Windows and Linux based systems.
What would be really super cool is if they would open source the thing. I’m willing to bet that a few hundred eyes turned on the source code could find new ways to make it even faster.
