And JVM has had a JIT compiler since 96.
For the record, HotSpot came out in 1999 and became the default in Java 1.3, which was released in 2000. The HotSpot JVM was also not a particularly portable program, so the performance benefits of JIT were by no means universal to all Java platforms. (Which was fine by Sun because it meant that for reasonable server-side performance you pretty much had to be running Solaris.)
