being EXTREMELY MAD at Oracle 

Hey, anyone got a torrent of jdk-8u271-linux-x64.tar.gz ??

turns out you can't download this shit anymore without at oracle account and I'm sure as one not going to create (if it's even possible, maybe it costs an arm and a leg?)


you know what? let's abolish intellectual property altogether

@uint8_t Does it actually have to be Oracle Java for whatever you’re doing?

@wolfie I was fighting broken vendor software and wasn't able to get it running with openjdk (+openjfx) so I thought let's try it with oracle's version,

lol, nope

ultimately, I got it working, after I realized it runs only with java===8, nothing newer or older. openjdk ftw.
