I am studying now a Object Oriented Programming and at end of
semester I will need to choose C# or Java and write some not-small
project. In connection to this I am collecting some information about
runtime of this languages.

I am using a Free/NetBSD as my primary development platform. It is
possible to download some Java x86 packages for those platforms.
But when I want to compile my own JDK it is a bit harder, to build JDK
it is needed to have older version of JDK - why ? Mono doesn't need
any .NET installed on system to build.

Is it possible to change this strategy in future to do build-process
more friendly for not Solaris/Windows/Linux ?.

In packages for BSD platforms I can see that it is a Sun JDK with
some patches. Do you have plans to port original JDK (in OpenJDK
project) to other platform than Solaris/Windows/Linux ? If you will
have that project in some near future I will be interested to help.

        Best regards
