  My understanding is that Java on Mac OS is in much better shape than Java on FreeBSD or on Linux, but I don't use Java, and don't care that much. But what's that got to do with the paper?

  No, just interesting things we ran into. There are plenty of others I didn't write about because I don't know about all of them. I'm pretty certain that the really hard work is being done by the Carbon folks. The BSD side of the system is pretty much still BSD. They are doing most of the adapting.

  Yeah. That really keeps us up late at night.
