LXer: Oracle offers Java distraction to Google fisticuffs

Published at LXer:

We're just like Sun, except when we're not. Oracle has promised to follow Sun and continue working on open-source Java in an apparent attempt to create a distraction from the damaging spectacle of its legal showdown with Google. Director of Java platform management Henrik Sthl has promised that Oracle will be like just Sun Microsystems, working with the OpenJDK code base and developing the JDK under its GPL license.

Yeah. Now all Google has to do is fork a new version of Dalvik from the OpenJDK and they'll be able to avoid being sued.
