Welcome to The Big Answer
Two years ago, at JavaOne 2004, a one-hour keynote discussion called The Big Question considered the issue of whether, when, and how Sun should open-source its Java implementations. Here at java.net, we set up The Big Question forum (http://forums.java.net/jive/category.jspa?categoryID=3 ) to continue that discussion.
Today, on November 13, 2006, Sun is beginning the release of its Java implementations under terms of the GPL. This is The Big Answer.
So we're opening up this forum to give you, the java.net community members, a place to talk about today's release. What do you think about the terms, the timing, and goals of the release? What will it help you do? Are there other things that need to be done?
This is your forum. Tell us what you think.
