Hi Ken,

My name is Denis Lussier and I am the Founder and Chief Architect of
OpenSCG, Inc.  Prior to Founding OpenSCG last year I founded EnterpriseDB
and still serve on their Board of Directors.   We have been reliably
building cross platform OpenJDK 6 Binaries for about a year now.   These
binaries are very high quality and are carefully & consistently built
following the build procedures outlined by the OpenJDK project.

The OpenJDK 6 project is rock solid thanks to contributions from companies
like Redhat, Google, Oracle and little companies like OpenSCG.   OpenSCG
makes cross-platform binaries available that Sun (& now Oracle) choose not
too on the official OpenJDK site.  The packaging strategy is very similar to
Oracle's Proprietary JDK and we presently offer four distributions as

OpenJDK 6 - Win32 - Build 20
Built using Windows 2000 and Visual Studio 2003 (just like the proprietary
JDK).  We also compile with the latest and greatest Freetype (with bytecode
hinting).  In the upcoming Build 21 we will be including Visual VM.

OpenJDK 6 - Linux x86 32 & 64 Bit - Build 20
These are carefully built on CentOS 4 so that they can be installed an any
modern linux 2.6 distribution.  In the upcoming Build 21 we will be
including Visual VM.

OpenJDK 6 - OSX 32-bit - Build 16
This one is a little outdated, but there is lots of renewed interest these
days in the BSD/OSX area now that Apple is backing away from it's
Propiretary JDK.
