Discussion at Javaposse

One thing that sounds from just everywhere is that people want Sun to do it cautiously and make sure that compatibility is preserved. The choice of the license will be really important - the license is discussed in the open now.

More information available at Open Sourcing the JDK.

Btw, first builds of JDK7 are available!

Thanks Roumen for the link. I went through the other links here and it is good to see, as you said, that everyone is keen for Sun to take their time.
