Java with apt-get, what's the scoop?

About half an hour ago somebody called me at the phone, presumably from a english-speaking country (can't tell because the calling number was masked).

The biggest opensource donator

Posted by fabriziogiudici on March 13, 2007 at 4:38 AM PDT

Still apologizing for writing just a few lines - but at the time I can't do more - I'd just like to point out this European Commission report which certifies that Sun Microsystems is the biggest FLOSS donor - and it's a cut above (3x) IBM, the second in the list.
