The last JVM I know of that avoided native threads was Sun's 1.3 version
running in "green threads" mode.  Performance and stability were nothing
to brag about.  There are several "academic" JVMs kicking around with
varying degrees of stability and compliance with the spec that might not
use native threads.  None are really appropriate for production use.

I've only toyed with it, but Solaris 10, along with Postgres, is
available for free download, ready to install and run on an x64/x86
system.  Yet another learning curve...
