Sounds like one for Brendan or Tim, Syan.

You can license any of your code under the GPL, regardless of the language used.

The objection against Java is similar to VB: it is still a proprietary language, albeit a rather open and portable one. While there are free implementations of it available (free as in freedom, not cost), they are not considered as equal to SUN's implementation yet, and SUN will keep preventing them from becoming equals.
