I suspect that a change to Open Source Software will depend
on more than just vendors. Vendors need to be responsive to
their customers, many of whom are still not with the new program.

I don't think this process can be driven entirely from the top.
It would be risky for a vendor to get to far ahead of its "community".

So while open forums like XML-DEV are closer to the ideal,
given the opportunity, I will be glad to participate in Sun's
own process.
