Running code in a JVM ... which is a virtual machine...
Inside a VM that runs Linux...
Inside a host OS that runs on native...which runs on a CISC processor... that internally runs a RISC architecture... so that makes the CISC a VM...
The RISC architecture I am pretty sure runs on Elf Magic... I am fairly certain Turing was an Elf working for Santa...
So I am really running my code on VM Elf Magic

    Technically the "CISC on RISC" architecture is described as an interpreter, but i guess, those two terms are pretty much interchangeable these days.

    Also, you can add to the confusion by using JLua to compile and execute code.

    I know one guy, he likes to go about RISC with this subtle difference in how you put brackets around the words. Normally RISC is Reduced (Instruction Set) Computer, but for x86 he twists it to (Reduced Instruction) Set Computer. That way he doesn't need to give a shit which is which x))

    @Pyjong I don't get it. *confused*

    Once someone asked me if we could put their JVM in a container...

    I said "thats not how that fucking works"!

    @IntrusionCM x86 is normally considered CISC but due to cisc instruction being shorter, (because its basically more simple instructions in one opcode) and due to x86 being unaligned you have a set of (reduced instructions)

    @Pyjong oh Lord ... Thx for explanation.

    @Pyjong Most modern desktop processors have microcode internally. Which is normally RISC.

    @Demolishun agreed. not sure I understand why you pointed that out
