Sun had a processor which could execute Java bytecode directly a few years
ago. I think they made / planned to make some kind of NC based on the chip
but AFAIR it died a death without ever making much of a market impact -
knowing Sun, it was was probably half the speed (even counting bytecode
interpretation) of an Intel chip which was half its price.
