Submission + - Oracle adds commercial option to JVM->

mario_grgic writes: Oracle recently committed a patch to the Open JDK project that adds a -XX:+UnlockCommercialVMOptions switch to the Java Virtual Machine. In particular, the switch seems to pertain to the HotSpot optimizations. Could the decision to charge for advanced runtime optimizations (currently free and available to everyone) lead to splitting up of Java to personal and enterprise editions. What impact could this have for already wounded Java on the desktop and future of Java in general? Perhaps Steve Jobs was right yet again when deprecating Java on the Mac OS X, calling it legacy technology?
