Good news on the Java front

Smile! There has been some criticism of the decision to use Java, as it is not yet Open Source. Well, Sun have recently decided that they'll change the licencing for the Java Development Kit (JDK) so that it can be distributed with Linux, rather than having to be downloaded and installed separately. Here's the story. In short, it'll soon be part of Ubuntu, Gentoo and Debian.

Vik :v)

LOL! I've believe that six months after it's happened. Sun has been doing a little kabuki dance about making Java public for well over a decade now. :-p
Whatever I might think of Sun and their dance technique, I have a lot more faith in Mark Shuttleworth. That guy delivers.

Vik :v)
