Oracle v. Google: All-Out War or Awkward Flirting?

msmoriarty (195788) writes "It's about 24 hours after the news of Oracle suing Google broke, so the Web is now filled with follow-up coverage: Google responded by calling the lawsuit "baseless" and vowing to fight; James Gosling, who left Oracle earlier this year, hinted on his blog that he saw this coming; and it seems that everyone (except Simon Phipps) is commenting on everything from what might happen with the lawsuit to what this might mean for the future of Java as a whole, as well as how it could help Microsoft. So is the lawsuit an all-out attack on open source software? Or is Oracle, as a Forbes blogger put it, just an awkward teenager who doesn't quite know how to flirt with Google?"
