Oracle and SUN Reaffirming prior statements, Sun said that it intends to open-source its Java and N1 software at a later date. The free software will cover its Java Enterprise System set of server middleware, Java development tools and N1 management software. The move will create a single package called the Solaris Enterprise System. It will include Sun's Solaris 10 operating system, PostgreSQL open-source database, the Java Enterprise System server software and tools, Sun N1-branded provisioning and management tools, and Secure Desktop software.

"Wrong. You can view the source to Java (the JVM and the J2SE API implementation). Therefore, it is open source. You're confusing the term "open source" with RMS's "free as in freedom."

So Windows is also open source because I can see the apis? Great!
