I use that PPA and love it. Plus, they update the script every so often
so you get the latest upgrade to version 7. It directly downloads the
file from Oracle. So what you are installing is a script. That will do
the dnloading from Oracle. From what I observed, Java 7 deals better
with multi-cores, out of the box. Ric
