I am missing something ... a review of google inlinks 
indicates this page is widely referenced by third party sites. 
Casually blowing this away without preserving at least parts 
seems ill considered change for its own sake

The top part by me remains a general and valid description of 
a method for getting Oracle's / Sun Java running ... not 
perhaps the easiest in light of some later changes, and 
perhaps not the 'ight' solution in light of the growth in 
maturity of openjdk ... but that

The bottom remains a rotting trainwreck needing maintenance 
every time Oracle issues an update ... shocking.  Who could 
have predicted that?
