Well they certainly don't run on _mine_.
I'm not an OS geek. I mainly have Linux (Debian and Ubuntu) and Java
works fine. I also have an OpenBSD box that's a "black box" to me (It's
important, I have a skilled BSD geek who looks after it). In general I
find that OpenBSD is absolutely secure, bullet- and bomb-proof. I'd run
everything on it if I could, if it weren't for the significant (to me)
problem that Java just doesn't want to co-operate with it.
I have no idea why. My BSD geek looks sheepish whenever I raise this.
But in simple practical terms, I can't shift my Java hosting to BSD. If
I could, life would be better.
