Java: free at last

InfoWorld: Top News comments Sun open sources Java under GPL.

“It's no surprise that Sun Microsystems is making its core Java platform freely available; what is somewhat unexpected is the vendor's choice of open-source license.”

Cool. Not just free, but very free. Java is the glue holding together lots of enterprise-level projects, and removing the barrier of uncertain licensing from Java will only help it spread. Bravo, Sun!
