ZDNet reported late yesterday that Sun has picked the GPL license for Java code.

Bravo! It’s taken many years and lobbying by many good people within and outside of Sun, but hopefully this is a case of better late than never. Discussion will rage about the choice of license, but whatever shakes out, I’m very happy to see JDK code finally out in the open (and Java ME here, Java EE here).

The bar is raised. Now let’s all get cracking on The Next Big Thing.
