openjdk

Finally it is happening for real: the Java Development Kit goes open-source. Sun has been hesitant for a long time for good reasons, but I'm happy to see this is happening now: https://openjdk.dev.java.net/

This is a great step towards making Java more truly vendor independent. On the other hand SUN has been the best owner of Java we could have wished for, and from that perspective I have always found this to be a long-term not-so-urgent discussion. The fact that SUN is doing this now is nicely in time in my opinion.
