am hitting over 100 KB/s. Where as portions of the GUI did't work, it
all works.

So I have to ask...what's wrong with gcj?


Probably nothing that time and coders interested in fixing it won't cure. ICBW, but I think gcj is a response to the less than free licensing of the current Sun offering. As such, it may take a bit of real effort to dup java given that Sun has a 10+ year head start, with lots more coder hours invested in java than FOSS has in gcj so far. Now if Sun makes good on GPLing java, something I'm not holding my breath over, the whole thing would be pleasantly moot. And we'ed probably have 64 bit plugins for firefox 30 days later.
