I seriously doubt this since the 1.2 was not released on Solaris and Windows at the
same time. I can't recall the exact time difference, but also the Solaris release was
a Reference Implementation at first (lacking native threads?) and the Production
Release came out much later.

So, I think we can expect a similar pattern on 1.3. The Windows version first, with
full support, and Solaris and Linux releases coming out weeks later, and possibly
initially without the HotSpot performance engine.
