fooabrotman: Yup, dondelelcar was at it.
abrotmanfoo: eh .. i'm not allowed out of my cage
nslaterabrotman, Java was made free just recently - and it doesn't need to be GPL to be DFSG compatible.
fooabrotman: ^o^ :D
abrotmannslater: it's not fully GPLed yet .. and not fully Free or DFSG free
nslaterabrotman, how can you be not "full" GPLed?
abrotman, can you ellaborate?
abrotmannslater: ask Sun? :)
nslaterYou cannot be 50% GPL.
It's all or nothing.
