Ubuntu Here We Come! - Java Finally To Become 100% Open Source
Sun: "We're trying to get Java into places it's never been before"

With only two weeks to go now before JavaOne, its annual Javaganza for developers, Sun has revealed that Java is at long last to be made 100% open source. "We're trying to get Java into places it's never been before," Rich Sands, group manager for developer marketing at Sun, told an interviewer on Tuesday.

The move, which completes a process begun long ago in November 206, is certain to boost further Java development, especially on the Linux platform. Till now, Linux distributors have been constrained from offering a fully open-source version of Java. Once 100& open source, Java can be offered as part of the free Ubuntu distribution, for example.
