Red Hat has taken control of two popular versions of the open source Java implementation, so developers can continue to build apps after Oracle’s support ends.
A big deal to enterprise users and Minecraft players, but I can’t really muster any form of excitement over this. Then again, every bit less of Oracle in this world is good news.
I’m curious Thom, what languages do you muster any form of excitement over? Haha.
You’ve overseen many of our programming discussions (in osnews comments), but do you ever take anything away from it?
I’m unsure how much of an improvement this really is. Yes, Red Hat is surely less evil than Oracle, but I’m not sure I believe they are that much better.
