Reading the Free Java Tealeaves

Danese is consistently the best kremlinologist for the behind-the-scenes battles in the for-profits and non-profits that surround open source, and I wish she'd blog more. Case in point: this fascinating post from Danese Cooper (former Sun open source diva) about the impact of the news that the Apache Harmony (free Java) project has SWING support. In the wake of Sun's "we want to but we don't know how yet" message from JavaOne about open sourcing Java, it's interesting to see a former insider's point of view. I can't wait to see Simon Phipps tackle this, though he hasn't posted at the time I'm posting this.
