How about bundling open JRE (with the plug-in) by default and if alone
JavaFX can get some presence in RIA space, Ubuntu can have a truly free,
patent unencumbered RIA platform.
Also, the server edition can ship with full openJDK and Tomcat or
JBoss/Glassfish thus acting as a full-fledged and easy to deploy application
server for enterprises.

We choose the brand of our Mobile Phone, Motorbike, Car, Shirt, Shoe, Bread,
etc. Then why not the brand of our OS too?
Pre-loading and forcing Vista on new laptops kills consumers' choice. Fight
for choice of OS just as there is for the Hard Disk capacity in new laptops.
