No thanks. I just compiled the gnu classpath 0.93 generics branch the other day. For my needs, I can use that with ecj from eclipse 3.2 and jamvm or cacao to compile or run most 1.5 compatible code. Sure, if I needed to write anything that has to go into production for a client, and it needs to run on 1.5, I'd compile it with Sun's 1.5 compiler.

Otherwise, I'll hold out until Sun's GPL 1.7 stack is ready. So, no IBM, if you want me to use your SDK then you should follow Sun's example and make it free.
