Did't you mix up cause with consequence? I asked for "cause" not the "result". If you answered me that "high level" talks with Sun on behalf of BSD community failed you'd be more informative. Linux is no match for Solaris, what about BSD? Java is present in medium to bigger corporations. Wouldn't it be more judicious to put more effort onto "Java for BSD Project" even at the espense of development in other fields? I hope I sound logical.
