Legal I'm supposed to be asleep right now, but this news kind of hit me like a ton of bricks: Oracle is suing Google over its Android mobile operating system, claiming it infringes on its patented Java technology. Not a good week to be Google, is it?

Microsoft's already made very liberal patent promises, and right now the Java community is in turmoil over the slow pace of Java evolution. It's constantly being compared unfavorably to C#.

This news is at least a swift kick in the face for the "Java = open, .NET = closed" talking point.
