The problem is that some programs may not work using anything but Java from Oracle. These programs specifically state to only use Oracle Java. Oracle Java is free, why not use the authentic Java?

It worked fine until today when my updater updated it, now AMinecraft and Blender do not know where to find the jre anymore.

This review is mostly of the package, NOT the software. I love openjdk + icedtea. Version 7 has worked really well for me across various distros and has successfully run every applet EXCEPT HOWEVER, neither of the openjdk-7-jre and icedtea-7-plugin packages actually correctly set up Java 7 on my system. They were happy to just leave Java 6 there in its entirety and not even change the default version in Firefox or anything. FURTHERMORE, I uninstalled the packages in the Software Manager, yet somehow all the Java 6 stuff was still on my machine! So I had to go in manually and redirect all Java links to Java 7 stuff and then "sudo rm -rf" everything Java 6. If you want Java 7 on Mint, I recommend first removing the Java 6 packages, then manually deleting any remaining files you can find with the "find" command, and finally either installing these packages or the official Oracle version depending on your preference. It's crazy that in this day and age, Ubuntu/Mint don't just come with Java 7 pre-installed in the first place.
