We were lucky enough to get to talk to Mark Reinhold, Rich Sands and Eric Chu from Sun who took time out of their extremely busy schedule to talk with us all about the open source Java announcement (Java has been released under GPL v2 - the rumors were all true!). If you have questions about what it all means, you may just find the answers in this podcast, developer to developer.
