Who cares. .NET/Mono are MUCH better than java anyway - don't waste your
time worrying about an open source JVM, just use mono which already is
OSS, and have a better development experience to boot. :-)
Some of us don't want to use Mono for fear of Microsoft waiting until
it's entrenched and turning around and enforcing their patents on it.
Java has a much better library of existing open-source applications (eg
the Apache Jakarta project).
Also pronouncing ".NET" as "dot net" is stupid and will probably be
as a turning point in the downfall of the English language.
