<warren> GPL java and community replacement is still highly theoretical at this point.
I find this statement odd. I was often confused about Sun's direction when McNealy was CEO, but with Schwartz they've been pretty clear about GPL Java. It's already started, even! Why are people so skeptical about this? I can imagine people being worried about scheduling; like not wanting to commit to Fedora 7 using Sun Java in case Sun takes longer than expected to finish opening the libraries. In this context, though, the question is long-term replacement of Mono apps, which isn't particularly schedule-sensitive.
