For those of you interested in open-source Java and are Ubuntu users, you'll be pleased to know that OpenJDK 6 was promoted to Ubuntu main and has now become the default Java Run-Time Environment (JRE) and Java Development Kit (JDK) starting with Ubuntu 8.10. OpenJDK is the open-source version of Java and is compliant with version 6 of Java. With Ubuntu 8.10 on x86 and x86_64 architectures, the Hotspot VM with its JIT (Just In Time) compiler is used as the default virtual machine. More information on these Java changes for Ubuntu can be found on ubuntu-devel-announce.
