Sun Grants Global Open Source Community Access to More than 1,600 Patents

Wow, Sun’s arrogance is without limit. They’ve released 1,600 of their patents but only for use with software licensed under their GPL-incompatible CDDL license. This means the patents can’t be used in Linux and lots of other GPL software like GNOME. This is so amazingly cynical and scummy that it takes Sun from irrelevant to spite-worthy in my mind.
