Hi Michael,

NB: I don't speak for Oracle or OpenJDK!

Not sure if you've had any other answers but since Java 7, OpenJDK has
been the reference implementation of Java so the Oracle JDK binaries are
based on the OpenJDK codebase (with a few proprietary bits added).

Reference implementation downloads exist for OpenJDK 7 on Linux and
Windows but these are very out of date and *will not* have the latest
security patches:

Likewise, reference implementation binaries for OpenJDK 8 exist but again
will not contain the latest security patches:

On Linux, I believe most distributions maintain an OpenJDK 7 package and
some may provide an OpenJDK 8 package.

OpenJDK 9 is the development version of Java 9 and I don't know of any
binary downloads but you can learn more about the project here:

If want to learn about OpenJDK and building your own binaries then the
Adopt OpenJDK project is a great place to start:

For OpenJDK 9 I've also posted a gist on how to build your own copy from
source (on Debian Linux):

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
