Java just has this image of openness, one that .NET will probably never have
unless it comes with a full General Public License (even David Blaine couldn't
hold his breath that long).
Despite my ignorance, this is a big deal. Java will now be even more embraced
by the young software anarchists who will become tomorrow's code leaders.
I don't happen to think that Microsoft has to make .NET, Visual Studio and
the rest fully open source. But it should think very, very seriously about giving
Java the exact same consideration as Visual Basic and Visual C#.
