Java Sun Microsystems plans to open-source its implementation of the Java ME specification and is shooting to have that done by the end of this year, Sun executives said Aug. 14. This is the first time Sun has said publicly that Java ME (Java Platform, Micro Edition) is part of its plan for open-sourcing Java.

No, actually I couldn't give a damn less about the GPL.
My days of being a license fanboy are long gone.

I'd just like Sun to stop playing around and define terms.

I would not define what they need to do is playing around. Java is not a "Hello World" sized app, therefore it takes time to make sure that any license changes they are doing is legal. Personally, I don't care what license they use, though it would be a nice sideshow if it is not GPL ;)
