Java Everywhere - Mac OS X, Fedora 9 and Ubuntu 8.04

We've all heard the statistics - with more than 6 million software developers worldwide, Java technology powers more than 5.5 billion devices including mobile phones, smart cards, Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, PCs, car navigations systems and more.

This week the Java ecosystem got even bigger.

Yesterday, Apple announced Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 1 adds support for Java SE 6

And today, Sun, Canonical and Red Hat announced the inclusion of OpenJDK-based implementations in Fedora 9 and Ubuntu 8.04 Long Term Support (LTS) Server and Desktop editions.

Barton & Rich both offer some commentary on what this milestone means for Linux developers and users.
