Not a question of its worth, but a question of what does it tell us?(well if it doesn't tell us anything, it isn't worth too much).
1. Does it tell us that people who have a vested interest in one of the options are voting? Or is it a good random sample that actually can reflect what people are thinking? Does the fact that its dropped in the Java community qualify as a random sampling?
2. Why does 22%(at this moment) of the voters not want Java open sourced? Im actually surprised the number is so high at this moment. Is it FUD driving that group? Oddly it appears that more people don't want Java Open Sourced than the amount that want it under a GPL license(20%).
