Thanks for your replies - but as I'm someone grown up with windows as a kid I'm one of the kind of using "installers" to make a software system-wide available. I also have this bad habit on linux by relying to heavy on the repos of the distribution I use and it's package manager.
Yes, as I had to include some libraries for java every once in a while - I know how to "use" such "packages" the manual way - at least on windows - on linux not so much - but it's not really I was looking for. I thought maybe there's something like on the linux front - get an installer package to install java system-wide - just for openjdk - I guess - as long as openJDK doesn't go this step - it will not spread on windows - as most windows-end-users are like "download installer - run it - use it" - they just don'T want to hassle around with zip-files and messing with paths and such - it's not the "windows experience" they used to. Also: As most "normal users" only buy pre-installed system - mostly java is always included - and auto-update by its update-daemon. For the minecraft-players - as they move to twitch and curse - these "launcher" provde their own (out-dated) runtime - so the users won't even notice if the system lacks java at all.

Currently I'm using OracleJDK on Windows and openJDK on Linux provided by distributor. I already considered to switch to openJDK on Windows as well, but I wasn't able to find Windows binaries.
Maybe someone could tell me where to get openJDK Windows binaries?
