Fools indeed..

Yeah, too bad that basically they replaced 50% of the kernel... They use
their own threads, their own memory allocation/optimizations... Their I/O.
Their "port" is an operating system as close to Linux almost as MacOS/X is
close to FreeBSD... (or that's what I was told by some IBM officials here in
the UK)....

It's not the SDK, it the ld.so, glibc, and libpthread (or better their
kernel implementations)... The VM (incredibly enough) is the only thing
running correctly...
