Fedora 21 Might Use OpenJDK 8 As Default
Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, the Fedora systems use OpenJDK as the default Java of the system. Because OpenJDK 8 has been recently released, on the 18th of March, it will be most likely adopted to be used by default on Fedora 21, which is scheduled for release on October 2014.
Java 8 (and OpenJDK 8) comes with support for functional programming, via the “Project Lambda”. As a reminder, OpenJDK, the community driven version of Java has more features than the Oracle Java so this is quite a good thing.
