Since some days, the "OpenJDK Build README" mentions Visual Studio C++
2010 as the reference compiler.

As mentioned by Kelly
the step seems to be a stable one, at least for some years, I guess.

Kelly, to your knowledge, has the transition to VS2010 been adopted even
by the formal JDK7 Release Engineering team?

Can we, outside of Oracle, give it a try or should we better wait some
weeks to see the build process stabilize before risking our mental
health ;-) ?
