The programming language is not 'free', and I didn't infer that it
was. Java was designed to be operating system-independent. Microsoft
perceived it as a threat to its hegemonic profits, so licensed Java
from Sun; MS then subverted Java's purpose entirely, and violated the
license agreement, by adding proprietary code to make it
Windows-dependent. Ergo Sun's lawsuit against Microsoft. JavaOne,
the lobby of 15,000 independent software designers/programmers,
strongly opposes Microsoft's WinJava steamroller. See
