Wow, I must have missed this news. Not sure how I feel. IMHO programming languages should be free and open. You can make your own IDE and sell it, but really the right to use the language should be free, or even in the case of Java, sell your VM to people.
Maybe I’m not well versed enough on the whole ordeal. Any insight anyone?
