Java, ahora libre

Este post fue migrado de un blog hecho con Wordpress. Si se ve mal, dejame un comentario y lo arreglo.

Una buena noticia! Con la misma licencia que el kernel Linux fué liberada la implemenación de Java de Sun Microsystems. Acabo de leer en la web de Sun:

Sun started a revolution with Java technology 10 years ago. With a free (N del R: gratis) runtime, an open specification, and a platform-independent promise of compatibility, Java technology became a gold standard in embedded devices, mobile phones, on the desktop and within the enterprise. Now, in 2006, Sun is open sourcing its implementations of Java technology as Free/Libre software.


13.November.2006—Sun believes deeply in creating communities and sharing innovations and technologies to foster more participation. Today in a historic move, Sun is opening the door to greater innovation by open sourcing key Java implementations—Java Platform Standard Edition (Java SE), Java Platform Micro Edition (Java ME), and Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE)—under the GNU General Public License version 2 (GPLv2), the same license as GNU/Linux.
