      Why can't we just have a normal CLI? I mean, having to type -XX:+UseZGC to change the default GC is a bit annoying. e.g. --gc=zgc would be so neat.

          Heh, there are now 7 major Java releases before JDK 8 and also 7 more recent releases. LTS17 will be released in a year so it'll be soon time to switch from LTS11.

            Well, Java does have a sane CLI, you only need -X or -XX syntax for experimental/nonstandard options. Why is ZGC both promoted to stable and kept behind -XX is beyond me though. If I had to guess, I'd say it's a sign that, despite releases becoming extremely thin, there aren't enough people left to implement the slightest change properly. Like seriously, something as simple as "do not garbage collect" really needed a "preview" stage?

                Why depreciate for SPARC64 and Solaris are the open source Solaris projects not important?

                  About time too.

                  Do you see any commercial deployments or marketshare for Solaris or SPACR64 hardware platforms that does not look like a rounding error?

                    To be fair, if it's a company using Solaris, they're probably using an OpenJDK that's at least a dozen major versions behind this one.
