I have noticed that all Java Swing apps run painfully slowly on my machine. Actually, painfully doesn't begin to describe how slowly they run. I believe I read somewhere that this phenomenon is the result of running Microsoft's JVM rather than Sun's. How can I find which JVM my machine is running and change it to Sun's JVM if I have Microsoft's?
that's a pretty slow machine, overall. i doubt you'll get much of anything to run quickly on such hardware, i'm afraid.

I really don't think that the processor or OS are causing the kind of delays I'm seeing. Yes, MS Word is very slow on my machine, but Java apps, including Sun's NetBeans IDE, move at a fraction of a snail's pace. Honestly, it's so slow that the apps are rendered useless.
