This was probably one of the first article on the matter (among about 20 that
I have seen since). Here is a more elaborate report:


,----[ Quote ]
| The company said it is hammering out changes to its Java Runtime
| Environment (JRE) license that will make it easier to distribute the
| runtime with Linux. The JRE is a part of the Java Development Kit
| (JDK), which features Java tools for programming in Java.
| "This will make it easier for the...developers to get their hands on
| the runtime with the operating system they are using. We are broadening
| the distribution of the platform," Sun Enterprise Java Platform vice
| president Karen Padir said. Padir was unwilling to provide further
| information, saying Sun would provide details at this month's annual
| JavaOne conference in San Francisco.

So we are yet to hear what happens. There is also a lot of gossip over
open-sourcing Java. Imagine to yourself Java distros *gasp*...
