> OpenJDK is Linux-only. It does not work on Windows. This defeats the purpose of Java of being cross-platform. You might say that Windows has Oracle's Java, but it is not GPLed. It cannot be redistributed or bundled with an app. It is huge and copyrighted. When you install it, it tries to screw you over by installing the Ask Toolbar. These are problems that GCJ does not have.

Just came across this which may address some of these concerns:
