Hmmm, interesting how much Intel provided! Especially in light that I've never heard of alternative Swing/Java2d/AWT implementation (usually all licensees use Sun one).

Also never heard of DRL VM from Intel. Does anyone know how good it actually is?

It's the good old ORP (http://orp.sf.net), with a few more years of research work and maintenance.

It's cool. It's not as fast as HotSpot, but that's not the selling point of a research platform anyway: in ORP's case,that's modularity of VM components.
