There is free java!  Dump sun!


Kaffe is a GPL'ed, fast, JIT, JDK 1.1 and nearly 1.2 compliant VM and
class library.

If you want to know more about free java, hassle me on
debian-java@lists.debian.org - I will probably knock up an open source
java web page soon, and get some compilers packaged for debian.
