It feels a bit strange for me to be in a situation to quasi-defend 
Oracle's actions (and when I say Oracle, I mean its employees that are 
involved in OpenJDK)  ;-) But I disagree here. I do not feel like I've 
been treated unfair. Nobody owes anything to anybody else. Oracle 
decides to work the way they do, and it's their choice. I decide to work 
differently, and that's my choice. Proposing to open source ZGC now is a 
move in the right direction IMO.

Thanks, Roman
