    SubjectRe: JVM performance on Linux (vs. Solaris/Windows)
    Besides, Specjbb_2005 doesn't do any IO or networking, and these should
    not be factors in the result.

    So although it's a simplistic benchmark where OS tuning may not provide as
    much benefit as JVM tuning, it still doesn't explain why Solaris is ~15% higher
    than Linux on the same hardware and JVM (I'm guessing that the tester did
    not spend as much time tuning Linux as they did Solaris, hence the question).
