Nicolas,

I do not consider "Free Software" as free or gratis, but as giving
"freedom and openness". And although I disagree with you, I would not tell
you that you misunderstand what "free software is" because you may be
coming from a different background; nor I will attribute to you opinions
that aren't yours (see 5).

Besides, I accept your concerns on the future of an open java, although I
am at the same time concerned about the multiplied effort in maintaining a
parallel native packaged version of most of the open java libraries, tools
and APIs. Why not just concentrate in delivering an alternative JDK/JRE,
thus achieving real openness and independence from Sun and at the same
time maintaining the separation of concerns?
