dsginter (104154) writes "Last November, when Sun announced that they would be adopting GPLv2 licensing for Java, I expected somewhat of a bigger splash. Is this truly a non-event or does the assumption of such a robust tool set on GNU systems change the landscape? What happens to LAMP? Will Tomcat move in as the web server du jour? Can PHP finally die? What about the venerable Portable Operating System Interface? It seems like there is a lot of room that could be filled by this move."
