i know it is just me. i got this new computer with windows 8. that is very confusing by itself. they changed things a lot. but also the oracle site has changed. i am unsure which download i want. i want the JDK and EE in case i need it, but what is web profile? do i want that one?

For anyone else reading this who hasn't read up on it yet: Web profile is a smaller version of JEE that doesn't include things like EJBs.
