    Go to www.sun.com ... see anything different.:banghead:

    This could have all sorts of implications for Java.

    Yeah don't you think this is going to be really bad for opensource? Like openoffice. They can now dictate what will or will not work with Java. Or they could at least.

    Java has a huge user base, it's unlikely they would change anything other than
    building in native support for Oracle. :laugh:

    It's unlikely openOffice will be messed with, but if we see Sun Office
    being agressively marketed then I don't know,
    but I doubt anything will change.

    The more widespread concern is MySQL, sometimes in competition w/ Oracle
    though not in the same league. I understand that they have promissed to
    keep MySQL under it's current license and continue to support and develop it.

    You never know, change might be good.
    Oracle has always been a big Linux supporter!!
    (they have their own distro, Oracle Linux)

    Ooh, I didn't even know this was planned. I'll look into it, seems interesting.
