Which VM/Compiler

4. Some other VM which I think are not as complete as the ones mentioned 
above (e.g. kissme with classpath).

Which of these possibilities is the best one if you are a Java beginner? 
Which combination has the most features and compatibility to Java (e.g. I 
read that there is AWT support in Kaffe, is it also in the libgcj?).
Is there a web page which has comparisons of kaffe/libgcj/classpath and 

Tanks for the help
