Java is Free!

I think Sun has well, with this contribution have contributed more than any other company to the free
software community in the form of software. It shows leadership. Its an example I hope others will follow.

This is indeed great victory for Free Software. A great part of this incredible progress is due to the great work of so many Free Java hackers. The runtime, compilers and GlassFish Aplication server will be available under GPLv2 and the libraries under GPLv2+classpath exception.
