Java "Although the .NET vs. Java war is basically over for control of the Windows desktop, where .NET is sure to become the managed language of choice for new Windows desktop applications, there is a new battle brewing. That battle is for the Linux desktop. Now that Java has been open sourced under the GPL, even the most strict of the 'free software only' distributions can start bundling it and integrating it into their Linux distributions out of the box."

that the same people who wouldn't support KDE because of QT are perfectly willing to ignore the patent issues with .NET. I'm not a KDE troll either, I've been using gnome 40hrs a week since the first release.
