It WILL be better in the long run. The race has begun awhile back, it's not time for the peak sprint yet ;)

I'm all for a free Java implementation. Give it time and it will happen. If not by just the community, by Sun themselves. We'll have to wait and see. Those who think I am crazy? I've seen stranger things happen in my lifetime. Linux Expos being full of people with suits and ties for one ;) I also saw IBM spraypaint "Peace, Love and Linux" penguins all over the streets of New York a few years ago.

Time will tell.
