Java The Lightweight Java Game Library provides a simple API to OpenGL, OpenAL, OpenCL and Game Controllers enabling the production of state of the art games for Windows, Linux and Mac. Version 2.9.0 contains a complete rewrite of the mac backend, support for FreeBSD, new OpenGL/OpenCL extension and bug fixes. The library is used by many high profile games such as Minecraft, Spiral Knights, Revenge of the Titans, Project Zomboid, Starsector, JMonkeyEngine, etc.

A) On Linux OpenJDK has progressed beyond usable. With the exception of IntelliJ IDEA(that has some weird internal API dependencies) I use OpenJDK 7 on a day-to-day basis. For development, test and production. Including playing Salem[1].
B) You were complaining the issues that the JDK brings after it installed(toolbars and other bloatware) and that is not the case on any other platform than Windows.
