OpenJDK Part of Linux Distribtutions

Sun announced that OpenJDK will be bundled and distributed with both Red Hat Fedora 9,and Ubuntu 8.04 (in both server and desktop editions). Additionally, NetBeans 6 will be bundled with Ubuntu's 8.04 LTS distribution, which by the way has also been certified on several Sun x86-based servers.

“Open sourcing Java under GPL v2 has always been about bringing the power of Java technology to new markets, and enabling new innovations. With an OpenJDK-based implementation included in both Fedora and Ubuntu, developers can now rely on a stable, open source Java as an integral part of  these GNU/Linux distributions,” said Jeet Kaul, vice president of the Client Software Group at Sun.

Happy Java coding!
