I'm a "use the distro" kind of guy, which means I'm on Java 7 and 8 on the machines I'm working with:

Ubuntu 15:
java version "1.7.0_91"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.3) (7u91-2.6.3-0ubuntu0.15.10.1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.91-b01, mixed mode)

Fedora 23:
openjdk version "1.8.0_65"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_65-b17)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.65-b01, mixed mode)

I'd vote for Java 7 for distro compatibility, at least for now.
