3 8 % D. I did not use an installer.
Console flag on SuSE Linux did not work.
Not that it matters but it only detected the JRE I was running the installer with, would be nice to detect all JVMs on my machine although on Linux I bet that's a lot harder.
New installer for OS X is much better.
When I started the installer a window poped up very shortly. I thought I'd failed, tried starting it again and ended up having 2 instaces of the installer open :) Otherwhise it was very fast and worked good.
