Business is Business, you know.

Consider the first article you linked to titled "Sun Broadens Support for Linux" and dated February 7th, 2002. Now read this dated February 20th, 2002. What's wrong with that picture? They're "broadening" their support for Linux alright, but as soon as there's the slightest hint its expanding into areas that could hurt their bottom line, they try to bash it back down.

Sun wants to be seen as a nice open source friendly company, but in reality they are very far from it. As the article I previously linked to says:

Sun loves to have Kodak moments with some parts of the open source community -- most notably, Apache -- who increasingly feel used and abused

Apache's stance on the JSPA states "The JSPA must require that a JSR spec license cannot prohibit a compatible independent open source (Apache-style license minimum) implementation of a JSR." Which I fully agree with. Their current license is most likely legally indefensible, and definately is not what I would call "supporting open source."
