At the Software Summit, there was a lot of talk about the IBM VM that includes a JIT that will compile to the CPU type to give big performance gains for pentiums (since most C/C++ stuff is compiled to 386 or 486). Where can I find that VM? Or was it for IBM use only?

I think you were referring to the "Jikes" compiler. Check the alpha works site on IBM.

Nope. That's a compiler. This was a VM with a special JIT. I got the impression that they were plugging it into browsers.

There is a "IBM JDK 1.1.7"
It's part of another alphaworks product from IBM.
You can download it there http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com/formula/SockPerf/
I have not tried it yet.
