There was a question about the Java licence the other day. Here's an
interesting article on it, particularly in regards to Red Hat.

Sun Microsystems' new GNU/Linux-friendly Java license does not go far enough
for Red Hat. It says Sun should have open-sourced Java instead.

Brian Stevens, Red Hat CTO, told The Register Sun should open-source its Java
Virtual Machine (JVM) (which is licensed by Red Hat) so developers can
improve the software's real-time capabilities.
