Oracle and Apple Announce OpenJDK Project for Mac OS X

Wow. This morning's press release from Apple & Oracle is incredibly encouraging. Talks with Apple on this topic have gone on for many years, it's great to see a positive move actually happen. The two questions that only time can answer are: will both parties actually deliver? and how will this work with Apple's software update center? (That had been one of the sticking points in the past: they didn't want to have Java auto-update from some mechanism outside their software update center, and they didn't want an outsider delivering code via their update center).
