“Given Oracle’s pratfalls and fumbles with some of the
open source projects they inherited from Sun (OpenSolaris, Hudson,
and now OpenOffice.org), doesn’t anyone wonder how long it’s going
to take for them to royally screw up the crown jewel of the Sun
acquisition, Java?

“Boy, I sure do.

“Given that Java is perhaps the most important open source

biggest reason Sun was bought in the first place), Oracle has to be
very careful how it handles the open source Java community. So far?
Not doing such a good job.”
