Please get your facts straight. Sun has never said it would use the GNU
license for Java.

This page includes a video of Rich Green on stage at JavaOne saying:

"It isn't a question of whether, but a question of how."

I would not have specifically said the GNU license if I had not read
it myself! If I can find the link I will post it on here.
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
