      Yes. Mainly because it is a direct upgrade path for existing IBM customers. Previous AIX and current zOS users.

      Also it consumes much less resources compared to HotSpot which plan to copy their homework: https://openjdk.org/projects/lilliput/
      J9 had AOP before HotSpot, it has JITServer to offload JIT compilation.
      And I heard it was good for low-latency GC: https://eclipse.dev/openj9/docs/gc/#metronome-policy. But now HotSpot has ZGC. And Azul has C4: https://www.azul.com/products/components/pgc/

      From downsides it is slower, kind of more buggy. And poorly supported by third-party tools.

          Obviously it's based on some existing technology. Languages for language runtimes can be exchanged. E.g. JVM supports tons of different languages. The Java project was started in 1991, but I'm not sure if Gosling had anything to do with OpenJ9.
