Sun, do you REALLY care about Free Software?

I don’t know about you all, but I’m starting to get really excited and concerned all at the same time about all of this Sun going for Free Software talk. I’m excited because it would be the first time a major corporation moved its flagship products into Free Software and still managed to make money (thus proving that there are ways to keep the accountants happy without restricting people). I’m concerned because I find it difficult to believe that Sun really intends to make this giant leap.
For the longest time now Sun has been one of the kings of proprietary unix flavors, and its Java libraries and runtimes have been proprietary since day one as well. Sun is without a doubt one of the biggest players in proprietary software. We were all quite pleasantly surprised when we discovered that Java will now start moving to GPLv2 with the classpath exception.
It still seems like they’re holding back. I see a lot of the use of the term “open” still, even though I do see Sun using the word “free” a lot… which is very good. Sun definitely seems to be going in the right direction, and I hope that they succeed–even financially (business isn’t bad)–with their endeavors in Free Software. I really hope that they sincerely intend to free their collection of software, and don’t stop until they’ve got a library of completely Free Software. The CDDL isn’t as strong a copyleft as I like, but it certainly gets the job done.
If Sun really does move towards Free Software, I’ll definitely welcome them to the family and even consider buying some of their hardware. Mmm… freedom!
