Very interesting. I can remember as we developed some "heavy" (about 15 mio. code lines) distributed enterprise applications with 1.3 (or was it 1.4?) it was pretty impressive how better on the server side JDK from IBM was. It was much more stable, less buggier, code much cleaner and able to use 4GB of RAM on AIX. Not sure about speed performance. I think Sun was better on that one. However it was never a problem for big companies, where new/more hardware is the answer.
