Does anyone remember that one of the reasons Linux or GNU/Linux (sorry Richard Stallman) was created, was to create a Unix like environment which was free and open to use and not encumbered by the licensing restrictions of the AT&T's original Unix.

With all the stuff happening with Java right now, being a Java developer has become a depressing experience, and it's getting really hard to see a positives for the platform.

Perhaps Java needs it's own "Linux moment".

A Java (but not Java) platform that is free and open and built on the same principles that made Linux a success, with the potential for the same type of success that Linux has enjoyed.

I don't know if it's even feasible, but it's certainly becoming an appealing thought.
