Java, Open Source, and Harmony

While the rest of us are talking about how and when Sun may open source Java, the Open Source Diva, Danese Cooper, has a slightly different take on the topic. From Danese’s perspective, we should be following Harmony, a J2SE Apache project:

” So…I’m wondering how long it will take the various Linux distros to figure out that they can ship Harmony (as they ship Apache) pre-installed and ready to use (even while they continue to put Sun’s JRE in the “non-free” directory, where its still two clicks away from users).” (DivaBlog)
