Sun is addressing the inherent Java speed problem with their new picoJava,
microJava, and ultraJava microprocessors, due out in 1997.  Java apps run
much slower than apps written in C++ etc., and Sun feels the best way to
deal with the problem will be to use processors designed specifically for
Java.  (Naturally!)
