A JVM Does That?

Cliff Click's recent blog post led me to the slides for his talk "A JVM Does That" - interesting stuff.

A quote from his post:
Java appears to have plateaued (although Projects Lambda and Coin may give it a serious boost), but the JVM is on a roll. Where people used to target C as their “assembly” of choice years ago (to avoid having to do code-generation), they now target the JVM – which avoids the code-gen AND supplies a GC, AND a well-understood threading model, plus true type-safety.
