Well, I don't like the gpl personally because I prefer the bsd license. But that's not the point, it's fine with me if you like it. My point was that it's not any better just because sun chose to use it.

I do think java is now better that sun is going to release their implementation under the gpl. bsd would have been sweet, but it's great that it matches the goals of such a large community (instead of, say, the cddl) and at the end of the day, I will finally have binary packages for openbsd.
