I can't even get Windows to install Java any easier than with Ubuntu, so
where's the real problem?  You download a zip file from Sun and uncompress
it.  If you want it automatically, you can even get it from multiverse. 
Yes, Ubuntu could do a better job of explaining how to get it, but it's Sun
that makes it a hassle, not Ubuntu.
