Thanks for all the informative responses.  I'm glad to hear that
things are moving forward!

Now for more questions...  :-)

>From the sound of things you're planning on implementing GUI support
at some point(?).  Is there a web page outlining your implementation
plans and timelines in more detail than "Cygnus Implementation Plans
for the Java(TM) Platform"?  I looked around but didn't find
anything...  I'm particularly interested in Swing support on Linux.
Wouldn't it be possible to bypass much of the AWT implementation if
the approach was to get Swing running first (no native peers)?  What
is the status of JDK 1.2 support in general?

What GC approach are you taking?  Have you considered implementing
"pluggable" GC?

Thanks,

Terry
