"No-one needs this sort of bad feeling in the Java/Linux scene, and if things could be patched up to the extent that Sun, Inprise and Blackdown could work together on future JVMs, or at the very least acheive an orderly and civilised handover, I imagine things could go well.

One clear advantage of any Open Source JDK would be in ensuring that these ports take place."
