I think you are spinning things any way you can to blame Oracle for
something. Sunwas blamed for taking too long between releases, now you
say Oracle is too fast...

Then you say you´d like OpenJDK 6 supported forever, next thing you´re
going to blame them for stopping support for Java 5...

Java is backwards compatible, you can run your JDK 5 code in Java 7,
and if it doesn´t work for some reason, then you have hit a bug. H*ck
you can even run Java 1.3 code under the latest greatest Java, and I
suspect even Java 1.1 applets still work (in fact I´ve used a few
dealing with 3D images).
