Java - the fork is called openJDK. This pre-dates the acquisition of Sun by Oracle.

OpenJDK was started by Sun.

Actually, OpenJDK is not a fork, AFAIK, it is an open source re-implementation of Java isn't it?

No. It is not a reimplementation of anything and neither it is a fork. A minute of googling would have found the answer. Sun open sourced JDK under the name OpenJDK.
