[This post is obsolete. See JDK 1.7 Mac OS X Developer Preview Download And Smoke Test]Would you pay for JDK 7 on Mac OS X? Mac OS X users are spending money for useful tools, editors and productivity extensions. Spending 20-50$ for a nice, easy to install JDK 7 port is a compelling idea (with several hundred thousands potential customers). The business model would be very similar to Linux-distributions. A JDK 1.7 port could be even integrated into the Mac OS X Lion app store with auto-update functionality. So, where is the startup?
