Mario Torre about Java on Mac

I would definitely consider, being Oracle, to use the OpenJDK code together with Cacio and invest some time and resources into it. To get something up and running it‘s a matter of days. And one can develop the cool native look and feel later, and with the help of the community. And no, no X11 is required, it will use and run with the native OSX APIs.


Go Cacio:

Actually I believe if somebody would donate a MacBook to Mario, he would do the (graphics) port himself in a week or two. 🙂

      Not really. My post hasn’t been clear on it, but I believe most of the (interesting) work of a MacOSX port is the graphics stack, which is (as far as I know) totally different from GnuStep.
