Ok I doubt this will come up on the exam and perhaps this can only be answered by the people who created the sun jvm for linux, but I read in sun's core java book that there are no thread priorities for the sun linux jvm. Wouldn't this cause the gc to be on equal footing with any other thread thus possibly taking up a lot of processing time during inconvenient moments?

This certainly won't be on the exam, so I'm moving this to Java in General (Intermediate).

Damien, you might want to post your question in the Performance forum. Some people there are good at gc questions.
