We just finished doing the keynote at the Server Side Symposium where we talked about our evil master plan which really consists of investing in the platform, collaborating with a bunch of different players to move it forward with the intent of broadening the marketplace. I mean, our business motivations are to make Java vibrant and continue to fuel this engine of developers and ideas and innovation and so on, that's sort of centered around the community. And we depend on that to get better all the time. We have thousands of developers ourselves that are pulled from that pool. We need to sort of fuel that engine. If that's an evil master plan for Java, then that's what it is.
