    Meh, I just use apt to install openjdk[78]. That way I get updates as they're tagged/built, and given that OpenJDK is the official reference platform for Oracle JDK (at least I'm pretty sure I read something to that effect), I figure I'm not missing much.

    the problem of non-transparent icons in the system tray. Does this corrected?
    since I enter the world gnu / linux, this aesthetic problem has always existed.

    We do the same... via a somewhat arcane packaging process, our dev machines at work have all the different versions of our techstack parallel-installed under /opt, so there's a directory with about eight different Java versions in it, ranging from 1.4 to 7. I'll have to see if I can clean out any of the old versions when we start looking at 8...

    Jigsaw supposedly will make application distribution a lot better on Linux in Java 9

    i find myself using webupd8 ppa: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/01/insta...buntu-via.html
    for easy install and update.

    is there a reason why they dont provide a deb file or even better put it on the store?

    because they love red hat, like intel do with this openclsdk, but a ppa exists, not really a problem
