It would like to thank everyone who was involved in open sourcing Java, by choosing the GNU GPLv2 you made the right decision. Thanks to all the Classpath and Kaffe hackers for their effort in building a free Java. Hopefully you will join the Sun engineers and create a whole new community.
Here is a quote from RMS which summarizes it quite nicely.
I think Sun has well, with this contribution have contributed more than any other company to the free software community in the form of software. It shows leadership. It's an example I hope others will follow.
This is a great day for the free and open source software community.
