Apache and Intel?  No, just Apache :)  That's not slighting Intel, but
there are many contributors to the project, and our identity is "Apache
Harmony" - we leave our corporate identities "at the door" when we work
here.

Well, we still are really appreciative of it because it's a production
grade VM that we can still use for testing.  It will help us make our
classlibrary and VM better.

Right - I think I said that on the mail list - that for now, we didn't
build that into the snapshot for windows.  Expect that I the next (or
so) update to the snapshot.

Yeah, it's just a packaging and integration issue.  We're getting there
:)

That's for trying it - we're interested in any feedback you have in
terms of bugs and such :)
