Oracle looking more predictory on Java licensing

Remember when Oracle were seen as the good guys by the open source community?

How different things would look if Sun Microsystems had never been bought out.

Nope, when was that?

Lol - yes, I wondered when it was too!

Was before they took over Sun Microsystems and OpenOffice.
They made a few gestures to Linux and the Open Source community.

Might have just been that some Oracle products ran on Linux before the days of Oracle Linux.

IBM and Intel were founding members of the Linux Foundation in 2007

Oracle joined the Linux Foundation in 2008, before many other big Tech.
