Hi Adrian,
I've been meaning to follow up on this. I happen to have gotten an SSD
for my laptop the other day and took the occasion to reinstall Ubuntu,
keeping only my home directory. For now, I'm giving Unity a chance to
prove itself (it finally seems to be coming along...at least it's
usable with dual displays now). Using Java 1.7.0_05 I have installed
via JWS and the menus are working find so far.

Here are the only quirks I've noticed in the new environment.

In the Open File dialog, the Open button is not selected by default
(so to drill down to a file, I have to either click the Open button or
tab till it has focus and hit Enter). This is slightly annoying, but I
can live with it.

(Our) JWS does create a desktop icon, but, as with the Mac, I get a
generic icon in the Dash and when I alt-tab. Strangely, for a couple
of days after I installed it, the Oxygen icon appeared in the alt-tab
and dash, but now it's a generic icon. I should also mention that
although we upgraded to the newer build that was supposed to have
fixed the generic icon problem on the Mac, it still persists. You can
inspect our JWS package here: http://docs.rackspace.com/oxygen/
On Linux, I an live with this, but it is quite an annoyance for our
Mac users.

I still have the old drive and will try to find time to boot off if it
to test Java SE Update 33 in Gnome 3.
