There is actually no such thing as a "supported OpenJDK platform". While 
I hope things may change in the future, OpenJDK as an organization does 
not publicize any list of "supported" platforms. Oracle publishes a list 
of platforms they support, and I presume that Red Hat and SAP and others 
do the same, but the OpenJDK project itself does not.

With that said, platforms which were previously supported by Oracle 
(like the one's you mentioned) tend to still work more-or-less well, but 
they receive no or little testing, and is prone to bit rot.
