"Metronome Garbage collection is now commercially available under the name WebSphere Real Time. This product is the result of a collaboration between the Metronome team and IBM Software Group. The first implementation of Metronome was in the open-source Jikes Research Virtual Machine (RVM)."
Do I misunderstand the meaning of the words "first implementation was" and "commercially available" ? Besides, if you had bothered to read my post, you'd see that the "freeness" of an implementation is a secondary point. You'd also probably know that extracting a GC from a research project and transplanting it into another JVM is not a mere technical detail.
Judging by the arrogant and dismissive tone of your post, I can only conclude that you have nothing informative to say on this subject. I also dare say that your attitude negates the value of all of your posts on the subject, (which even though I didn't agree with completely I initially found interesting).
