[sorry for cross posting]

"Months of speculation and waiting are now over. Sun will release key parts
of Java under GPLv2 today (November 13th, Monday). The initial release today
will include the HotSpot runtime, javac compiler, JavaHelp, and Sun's Java
ME implementation. The rest of Java will be released under GPLv2 early next

Richard Stallman of the FSF has endorsed the move, and will appear on a live
web cast <http://www.sun.com/2006-1113/feature/index.jsp> with Sun CEO
Johnathan Schwartz and software chief Rich Green. "


Great win for Free Software.


"Value your freedom, or you will lose it, teaches history.
`Don't bother us with politics', respond those who don't want to learn."
