For New Ubuntu, your choice.
Ubuntu is nice distro as long as it's default repo is enough for you (it is for most of the Linux users). When you want something less popular then you can choose between Arch Linux/Gentoo/something-else-? or try make -> make install with source code, but this makes a total mess in your system (for example: Arch can make a standard package from original Oracles JRE on the fly using AUR (with packer or yaourt or manually with makepkg)).
