Please, Red Hat, drop a few bucks for this! ;-)

But someone told about incompatibilities on Fedora Java packages that prevented OpenJDK 7 / IcedTea 2 from being the default Java in F16. So I can expect OpenJDK 7 to be the default Java when F17 is released?

PS: I am writing an aticle about open source java jvms, it looks like GNU Classpath, GCJ, JamVM, CacaoVM, Kafee are dead, although not officially like Apache Harmony. Anyone can comment on this, mayne on a new thread?
