Last I checked (whatever ubuntu 9.04 used) there were still some major
holes in the main class library. Problems where the behaviour of the
API just wasn't right. I figured at the time openjdk was just still
trailing in functionality and this wasn't supposed to be a full
fledged java release. I guess I was wrong and should've bothered to
report bugs, but it's definitely not a given that lack of reported
bugs == release quality. Couldn't more be done to get users testing it
