I guess many of us have had that thought on occasion to go back to one
of the FOSS OSs that we used in the past. Well, it does happen to me
at least. It usually is some piece of 3rd party software that I'd like
to run, that has no package in pkgsrc(-wip), and that is non-trivial
to port (e.g. VirtualBox). 

To prevent myself from hours spend installing and configuring I remind
myself of some of the experiences from the times I was using these
other OSs and that usually gets rid of the attraction very
quickly... ;-) 

Concerning Java applications I keep jdk-1.5.0, kaffe, openjdk7,
openjdk7-bin, sun-1.5, and sun-6 installed. Some applications I have
needed will run with only a specific implementation/version.

Best regards,
