    Has anyone tried compiling OpenJDK with the Intel C Compiler? I read that it can increase performance up to 40% and wondered if that would translate to java

    You know, C compiler probably compiles C code, not java.
    EDIT: Oh right, misread it. And nope, as @Afforess said later in this topic.

    OpenJRE is a JVM. Therefore, it is made in C.

    There's an open source alternative to Java...? :eek:

    Holy crap. WANT. I'll try to do this in my Linux box and post back with results. :D

    I've read in the past that it doesn't work properly with Minecraft.

    ATM, Open Source Alternatives to Java are *usually* behind Sun/Oracle's implementation in terms of performance. I'd recommend using Java 7 from Oracle for the best performance.

    I guess you're referring to OpenJDK. It works fine with Minecraft. In fact, it's mostly the exact same code as Sun's implementation of Java - they open-sourced the vast majority of the code base back in 2006 and it's been in active development ever since.

    Oracle may have acquired Sun and continued development privately, but OpenJDK is still a viable alternative.
