Oracle += Sun

Well, it took its time coming, but reports are that the acquisition has been approved by the EU today.

I expect a number of Sun employees will be opening their mailer with trepidation when they get into work this morning. Its the end of an era for a big name in the industry, but a great opportunity for a new era in the Java ecosystem.

Congratulations and good luck to all those involved.

Yes! New opportunities! :)
However, Russian and Chinese regulators are still thinking. But they are expected to make a decision right after EU.
