I tried jamvm plus classpath but got the GTK-Peer bug because a library my
app uses draws with Graphics2D. Normal swing sliders/borders and
comboboxes did work though and the application could be closed nicely.
Didn't have top menus of course. I was impressed with the startup speed on
the 770 compared to my pc: not that much slower, although of course no jit
compilation is performed.

I don't know if cairo is available on the N800? If so, someone should try
to configure classpath with --enable-gtk-cairo, which according to my
understanding of this problem should solve the GTK-Peer bug (?)
