Legal So, Google has finally officially responded (thanks for hosting, Engadget) to Oracle's patent and copyright infringement lawsuit against the search giant's Android mobile operating system. Apart from boatloads of pages on how Google pretty much denies any and all claims, there's a lot of interesting stuff in there - stuff that doesn't seem to bode well if the courts do decide Google is infringing Oracle's patents. It also makes it crystal clear that anyone who values Free and open source software should avoid Oracle products like the plague.

Someone should explain to me why I should care if large corporations trade lawsuits and monies.
As many others have pointed out if your religious beliefs require it then by all means avoid Java and Android and products using these technologies. Presumably there are phones available that are patent free.
