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?

I was going through the contents of the book and had a couple of questions related to the performance tuning.
Does this book put some light on-
G1 GC that has been introduced in java 7, and how much performance benefit we can get using G1 GC. How to tune GC, how much should be the Heap, PermGenSpace, OldGen ratio for max performance. Does java has tools like JProfiler, to identify the bottleneck?

Few other questions
As java has been taken over by the Oracle, will they continue to support java as opensource? What you guys think on the future of Java? Can we expect the same kind of innovations with Oracle as Sun did? It seems Oracle is looking at Java in business terms.
