The big question is who would have interest in competing in the VM market?
There isn't a lot of money in that market - why pay for something you
can get for free.

If this would really be the case, I guess the only thing which would
happen would be that Hotspot would be maintained just enough to stay
compatible with the classes.
Time will tell, at least nobody can take away what has been
open-sourced already :)
