To me, it's more about envy than anything else; and also reflects Oracle's philosophy about Java (something they weren't involved in creating) as "their property".

Personally, I hope the judgement is for some portion of the license fees they may have been due (400m) as opposed to the 8.8g they're going after - which represents all profits that Google have made from using Java in a way that Oracle never thought of. However, since they've specifically decided not to pursue the licensing part of the total, I wouldn't have too much problem with them losing this time around as well.

By contrast, Sun's CEO congratulated Google when Android came out with some comment about rocket boosters.

If Google has moved all the Android development using OpenJDK (GPL v2), is there still any possibilities for Oracle to sue Google for using Java?. since its GPL-ed API . thanks lot.
