What Java is right for you?

Intersting find today: If you’re running Solaris 10, you’re way better off using JDK 1.5.0_xx. Using JDK 1.6.0_x will result in unusual heavy loads and application crashes on Solaris 10.
However, if you’re running Linux, it’s exactly the other way round. On Linux, JDK 1.5.0_xx will consume a lot more memory than 1.6.0_x does. In fact JDK 1.5.0_xx will even consume more memory than allowed, resulting in … yep, you guessed it: heavy loads and application crashes.
