To Open Source or Not to Open Source...

Posted in General at Thursday, March 25, 2004 1:58 AM Pacific Standard Time

McNealy has announced that Java will not be moving to Open Source [via Vinod].

“Go open source with DB2 and then you can tell me what to do with my assets,” was McNealy’s response to IBM.

These are interesting times. There was speculation that this is what McNealy would do, but I think his response is interesting. IBM would be happy with Open Source Java, but I kind of doubt they would ever Open Source DB2.

So where does this leave the C# vs Java, the battle for the Linux desktop debate? Now that Java definately isn't going to be Open Source, is C# the closest thing? Is this all just a show put on by corporations?
