Now, that seems a little unfair. I'm no big fan of SCSL, but from what I've
seen Sun has always been very up front about their license NOT being open
source. They've never claimed it is, nor (as far as I can tell) tried to
lure the open source community into using it.

You may not like their position, but at least their self-consistent.
