Great news!

This is really great news!
Sounds like this is one of the biggest and important things that happening in a long time.

Sun Microsystems are awesome, they open sourcing Java, and sometime ago they open sourced the Niagra T1 CPU core and I've heard they're planning to release OpenSolaris under the GPL too!
Nobody can question the GPL anymore, those days are over!

Sun is now my favourite company along with Google, the only thing that could be better would if Google and Sun cooperated, that sound like a good idea.<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:D

I don't know Java, I have never coded with Java, but now I might actually go and learn it!

Now many Linux distributions that hesitated to include Java before, can now include it, now that it is/will be free.

Now to end this post, I will chant what Steve Ballmer would have chanted if he loved and was really enthusiastic about Java;
JAVA! JAVA! JAVA! JAVA! JAVA! JAVA! JAVA! JAVA! JAVA!<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:D
