arrogance, personified

I see this in the overnights from the OpenJDK front:
IBM joins the OpenJDK community, will help unify open source Java efforts, with the salient 'pull quote'

It became clear to us that first Sun and then Oracle were never planning to make the important test and certification tests for Java, the Java SE TCK, available to Apache
This dovetails with my prior post

It's official -- Oracle is a profit maximizer and could care a hoot about being anything but dictate what is best to FOSS. But then you already knew that, right?

Not to sound arrogant, but we know how to deal with the Linux community
... naw, that does not sound arrogant, at all, Wim
