I hope that after success of OpenSolaris, releasing Java under some kind os free ("as in freedom") license is only question of time. While I do not use Solaris, I use Java and if Java was open source, I would treat it more seriously while choosing language/platform for my projects. I'm kind of person who cares what kind of license have tools that I use.
