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.

Mono has Java support

So if you could install mono and have .Net AND Java (through IKVM) then why would you want a (presently) fatter implementation of the JDK?

The only reason I can think of right now is JNI support.
