Java "For the last couple of years the community has been working to ensure that developers can create applications using Java without having to depend on proprietary software. Today, the Free implementations are already very capable and support a vast amount of functionality that developers expect from a Java-like environment. Important large applications like JOnAS, OpenOffice.org 2, Eclipse 3 and Tomcat 5 are known to work and now included in distributions like Ubuntu and Fedora Core. This document provides a road map of the various projects; how they work together, where they are, where they're going, and how we make sure that they work well and are compatible."

Just waiting for a _useable_ plugin for Firefox so I can get my Yahoo fantasy sports stats! I am a Java developer (among other languages), but I think I could live with a subset of java, especially if JDBC support is present (I haven't checked). Most java applications in the business world are about moving data, so JDBC is imperative.
