Just checked the Sun's Java website and there is an interview with Shannon
Lynch from Sun.


It tells how Sun chose GPLv2 for open sourcing their code.

Great news! Its in the wild now boys. I was hoping to learn a programming
language that was free/open, and am trying to learn python. Java was
encumbered so I'd of rather not learnt it, now my ethics are clear :D.
