It varies greatly, Windows uses it horribly in comparison to Linux-Based machines. Well, at least that's the case with java itself (IE: Chats, etc.) Although I've never been able to get Java apps to run in Mozilla Firefox on Ubuntu, even after installing Restricted Ubuntu Extras
(Which comes with JAVA and JAVA Web Start)
Macs seem to run them better than Windows though.
