  1. I prefer downloading the .bin from sun website too, but this is for average users who want the fastest way to install Java SDK, btw i like the Java 2 better than the Java 5.

  2. Well, for serious Java development it’s much better to just download the Unix tar ball from Sun.
    That way you can fine control which version of JDK you need without apt-reconfigure your JDK.
