  • I noticed this ad, but I'm personally happy that Sun GPLed Java [oreillynet.com]. While I'm not too big a fan of Java as a programming language, it is an important technology, and it's a good thing to have it under a usable open-source licence. Every contribution for open-source is a good thing, because the issue at hand is not Perl vs. Java/Python/Ruby/PHP/LISP/Intercal but rather free vs. non-free software. So Sun deserve some credit for their move.

    I did find the ad a bit funny in the context of use.perl.org, but I've seen worse ads in my lifetime, and was not particularly moved by it.
