Is the garbage collection thread a non-daemon thread ? and can the garbage collection thread outlive the last user thread ?

ok.... lets look at this objectively.
* by definition the JVM won't shut down til all user (non-daemon) threads finish executing.
so.... if the garbage collector is a user thread -- how would the JVM ever shut down?
