Ubuntu backs off dumping Oracles Version of Java…

In a not to surprising move Canonical has backed off it’s earlier stance to drop the Oracle version of Java from it’s distrobution Ubuntu.  They were attempting to do the free and opensource thing and use OpenJDK instead.  The problem with that is that not all of the Java Application servers support it let alone small Java apps. The differences aren’t that commonly found but when they are they are extremely hard to trouble shoot.  We are glad to see them choose the practical approach rather than a hard line stance that would have hurt functionality of the platform.
