...that's what happens when idiots write articles and even bigger idiots make headlines for them.  :D



Oracle will start charging:

- only commercial users (eg. companies);

- only for updates (not Java itself!);

- for Java 8 (which is old and outdated and a security nightmare anyway);


Feel the difference?

Java is still available at zero-cost


This is as true today as it always has been - but the new six-monthly release cycle does mean some big changes are happening.
