That will not change much the current situation. Java 8 is already the
default JRE proposed on since September 2014 and its
usage is increasing steadily on desktop computers (the stats on my
application are Java 8: 25%, Java 7: 55%, Java 6: 20%). But on servers
the transition is much slower, and the OpenJDK 7 used by the Linux
distributions will be supported for several years after the end of the
public updates.
