JVM implementation is platform dependent.
JVM decides on the algorithm for GC.
On this count IMHO GC is not platform independent.
Gurus may correct me if I am wrong

Hi TVS, Farooq!
There r three kinds of JVM implmentation ---- FULLY INTERPRETED, JIT COMPILER & HOTSPOT. Last two implementations have virtually wiped out the former one. The details of them are out of scope in this forum, i think....
here u may find something here...
