Sun to Open Source Java…

They say that you can’t believe everything you read, and what I just read falls under this category.

ZDNet is reporting that Sun has publicly mentioned it plans on open-sourcing Java. This comes after Sun announced it will release it’s OS, Solaris via open-source.

Is this good, bad, or ugly? I’m not sure yet. Let me let it marinate….

UPDATE:
It appears that Sun is NOT open-sourcing Java. The ZDnet article quoting Raghavan Srinivas, a Sun Engineer, on Sun’s plans to open source Java is being called false in a new report by Sun that I read on the NetworkFussion website. You think Raghavan got a slap on the wrist for making public Sun’s plan to open-source Java? They probably were gonna save it for SunOne….
