And he managed to plug Jini and Java quite a bit as well, I see. I wish there was a transcript or audio file of the event.

To the ones who thinks that complicated software can't be liberated (or Open Sourced as some here like to call it). I only say, gcc (the GNU C/C++/Fortran/ObjC Compiler) and Linux kernel. Two of the most complicated softwares out there.
