Java GPL'd

I used to write a lot of Java. Over time I stopped, as it was inconvenient. I couldn't just apt-get it like everything else, and I just felt dirty agreeing to licensing terms before downloading it. And I knew I couldn't redistribute it easily, etc.

Looks like it's time to care about Java again:

I can't believe they went with the GPL and not some CDDL-like stuff. Go Sun. Bravo.
