Java virtual machine

CACAO is a free virtual machine for running Java programs It has a state-of-the-art optimizing JIT compiler, with performance competitive with that of the Sun HotSpot product JVM. Note that CACAO is not officially certified as Java. (Nor is any other free virtual machine.) This is because some aspects of Java -- such as the Swing extensions -- are not implemented by the free GNU Classpath libraries, which the CACAO runtime uses.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
