Java Sun Microsystems has announced the release of an open-source version of its Java Development Kit for Java Platform Standard Edition. Sun has contributed the software to the OpenJDK Community as free software under the GNU GPLv2. Sun also announced that OpenJDK-based implementations can use the JCK (Java SE 6 Technical Compatibility Kit) to establish compatibility with the Java SE 6 specification. OpenBSD has already started importing the release.

Now with .net updgraded along with vista this is the ideal way to compete. As its GPLv2 it means every 'everything must be free free' distro can also include it!

my only hope is the gplv2 doesnt inspire a million forks
