Finally the OpenJDK sources are available. Still quite a lot of people, especially a subset of Linux folks, don’t seem to care about java. Personally I think we will look back on this in a few years as a crucially important point in the open source and free software world.
This opens the way for a lot more free and open source software to be shipped with Linux distros which is not only convenient in itself, but will help position that software as the default choice for many users over the proprietary alternatives.
