[ubuntu-uk] Oracle sues Google over Java

I had a bad feeling about Oracle taking over Sun. I think that Oracle's 
goal is to make money, and it continues to develop and make available 
the free stuff that it inherited from Sun only because there would be an 
outcry if they started charging for VirtualBox and OpenOffice.org.

Any company that stoops to sue another has already lost its way.
