Hi all,

Thought you might find this interview with Sun's Jonathan Schwartz

"We asked about his thoughts on Red Hat re-implementing the Java platform
from scratch and the implications that would have for Sun. He believes
that there is no danger of Red Hat going very far within the Enterprise
with this new project because of several reasons, including the fact that
it would be a "tough sell" for established customers of the Java platform
including Samsung, Nokia and Google. In fact, he fears that IBM is the one
that would have the most trouble from the whole Red Hat-Java deal, because
as they use Red Hat for their POWER projects, using a non-certified Java
version could create potential runtime problems." [1]

Non-certified...pah!  :)
