Actually, the ZIP archive is all-in-one: it contains files for all supported platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. However, to ensure easiest installation and best user experience, it is strongly recommended to use a dedicated download option for these platforms instead: Windows bundle provides convenient installer and bundled JRE, Mac OS X - a Mac-style application, Linux - bundled Oracle JRE for x86/x64 which is superior to OpenJDK when it runs UI applications.

JDJ Editors' Choice Award Winner YourKit Java Profiler received the Java Developer's Journal Editors' Choice Award.
"I had to collect data about a memory leak that happen over several hours of time in the production server. Using other profilers this was not possible since they kept on crashing. Using YourKit this was amazingly easy. It just ran in the background and I gathered statistics at certain moments in time and then compared them against each-other. YourKit is a really nice profiler and I use it now."
