Indeed. Anybody got a Pi here? I'm itching to try my little games out on it.
The Dalvik VM, if anyone doesn't yet know, is actually mostly based on the JamVM, a fully compliant J2SE JVM, which itself these days uses the OpenJDK classpath. JamVM is actually pretty performant given that it does virtually no optimisation beyond simple JITting code like the old Java 1.1 VMs used to. It's also incredibly tiny!
. Just imagine what it could do with a bit of Hotspot magic and a proper GC! In fact I know, coz I've played with the Sun ARM JDK 6 and it's blazing fast...
