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.

There already are a few JVMs.
We've got Sun's, IBM, GNU Classpath, GCJ, and Apache Harmony. Sun's will still be the standard, so we don't have too much to worry about
