Installing free jvm and being forced to remove them when you find
application/plugins that do not work well with them is quite annoying. I
tested many openoffice plugin do not work well with free java VM (last
one was probably languagetool).

Free Java plugin for mozilla also require sun-java6-bin and non free
plugins do not make it...
