comment Is clean formatting a pre-installed Windows 8 system and dual booting Windows and Ubuntu in Legacy worth it?
I would rather run my non-primary OS as a virtual machine. I think the dual boot thing is an artifact from days long past when VMWare hadn't yet existed.

comment Is there a standalone version of soapUI for Linux?
Not quite. If your using Oracle JDK, you'll need to uncomment a line from the soapui.sh to make it work, otherwise you'll get a gui related error. Also, I run it just fine with a 64-bit JVM.

comment How do I make java default to a manually installed JRE/JDK?
I am noticing the same thing: that the update-java-alternatives command does not work with a manually installed Oracle JDK, such as '/opt/java/jdk1.7.0_25'. Very annoying.

I am noticing that the 'update-java-alternatives' commmand from the java-common package doesn't work with Oracle JDK. Anyone know why?
