    Win98/ME vs. W2K performance


    It seems like java runs a lot faster in W2K. Anyone else noticed this or
    have some decent benchmarks of the different VMs on different OS. Most of
    the benchmarks I've seen are pretty old.

    My app does call some c++ functions via JNI and this may be where the problem
    lies between W2K and 98/ME, but wanted to find out if anyone out there had
    done some extensive benchmarking of the VMs and OSs.

    thanks,
    -Carlos

    PS. Currently using IBMs VM as it is 10 to 20% faster than hotspot in my
    experience (on W2K).

    I don't know because I don't use 98(anymore) or ME. 98 kept crashing on me
    and I know lots of people who have deinstalled ME for the same reasons.

    My experience with windows 9X in the past is that it doesn't handle memory
    very well.

    My suggestion is that if you have a choice don't waste your time comparing.
    Use NT (NT/W2k/XP) technology.
