Java Sun may have streamlined its Java development process and intensified its marketing around the openess of the programming language and platform, but some smaller partners are still not happy.

I know, let's split the JCP into two groups. In one group the larger vendors will have more votes based on how big they are and in the other group everybody (small and large vendors) has an equal vote. Then, before any changes can be made, both groups have to agree on it. This plan is so brilliant! I can't believe nobody's ever thought of it before!

Seriously though, I don't think it's really possible to satisfy everybody. Open Source and big business seem to have fundamental disagreements. I'm not sure you can please one without alienating the other.
