And that's what I tried to say in my last few posts. Given Oracle's
apparent stance to own Java not by copyright but by patent, it doesn't
*matter* that Java is "open source". We'll have to wait until Oracle
v. Google is decided, but unless Google can invalidate Oracle's
*patents* on Java, Java is effectively dead, unless you want to sleep in
