Oracle to set tiers for Java VM

The Register reports that Oracle is splitting the Java Virtual Machine into two tiers, a free one and a paid “premium” one. This is a natural progression of Oracle’s strategy to monetize the major assets of its Sun Microsystems acquisition.

While paying for a (presumably) faster or more feature-full JVM is no problem for large development companies, as a small business developer, I am glad most of my development projects use truly open and/or free languages, including Python, C++, and C#.
