Java Sun Microsystems has announced the release of an open-source version of its Java Development Kit for Java Platform Standard Edition. Sun has contributed the software to the OpenJDK Community as free software under the GNU GPLv2. Sun also announced that OpenJDK-based implementations can use the JCK (Java SE 6 Technical Compatibility Kit) to establish compatibility with the Java SE 6 specification. OpenBSD has already started importing the release.

RE: Open Source is not a verb

Of course it's a verb, if it's used as a verb. Good or bad, that's for history to say.
I remember when I was young that the word "kodak" was sometimes used as a verb - as in "to kodak something".
History wasn't too kind on that one; let's see what it has to say about "out-sorce" and "open-source".
