Oracle aren't "charging for Java", they're charging for extended support for an old version of Java.

This is blatant clickbait.

As best I can tell a more correct title would be "Oracle will charge for Java SE 8 starting in 2019" and you're okay on Java SE 9 but having read the license terms I'm not sure 9 will be free for commercial use in six or 12 months time.

Watch this space, migrate to OpenJDK etc.

The headline is misleading... this is only for Java 8 not the latest release of Java

Yes the company behind the blog post has some skin in the game ... "Specialized technologies like Aspera SmartCollect and LicenseControl for Oracle are already built to take the surprise out of Oracle contracts and maintenance costs, and ensure that you pay the lowest price for Oracle licensing."

How will this impact OpenJDK?

Or is it time to migrate to .Net Core or something else?

It doesn't impact OpenJDK.

Please stop keep posting this. I don't how many times I've seen this here.
