I'm having a lot of problems with Jaikoz on my Macintosh, and am wondering if maybe Java is to blame. My understanding is that Apple has poor support for Java.
Maybe I would be better off with Jaikoz on Linux or Windows, assuming they have a more robust Java implementation.
What's the best OS and Java implementation to run Jaikoz at the moment ?
Functionality wise Jaikoz works the same for all three platforms. However when the Java User Interface for developed, I think it was developed with Windows and Linux in mind, as a result it is a little easier to make a Java application look native on Windows/Linux than on OSX. Java for Windows and Linux is written by SUN, whereas the OSX version is ported from the Linux version by Apple, because Apple have a closed bug database its support for the Apple version is quite not as good.
Jaikoz is not bug free (although I try hard to make it so) so without knowing what problems you are having it is difficult for me to know if a different implementation will solve your problem.
