I agree.

However, I for one don't buy into the dire consequences that many predict
would occur if Java were open sourced.  Nor do I believe that open source
is quite the panacea that some would seem to believe.

But I do believe that Java would be available more places, and the JDKs
themselves would have a few less bugs, if the JDK itself was open source.
In my mind, these are the two biggest impediments to "WORA".
