I don't think OpenJDK makes one bit of difference for enterprise developers, for two reasons :

1) Enterprise developers tend not to care about the license under which their JRE is distributed. They care about speed and stability.

2) Sun isn't *switching* to the GPL+ClasspathException for the Java code base, but simply *adding it* as an option for the source. Sun will continue to distribute the tested binaries under the existing license regime. Further, as of this writing, Sun has no public plans to distribute OpenJDK as a binary.

Don't forget, developers can also continue to choose IBM's J9-based distribution, as well as BEA's JRockit distribution.
