NetBeans 4.0 and Swing Themes

Well, for those of you who are running on non-windows platforms and noticed that my tip about adjusting the look and feel won't (legally) work on linux, enter the Netbeans Themes feature "Ouch my eyes it's purple" not bad enough for you? How about "Run for the Hills it's EarthTones!"

The themes page describes how to do it, but the Readers Digest version is to drop an appropriately formatted themes.xml file into $HOME/.netbeans/dev/system/. It's not perfect, as you can see the window titles in the embeded windows don't catch the theme, they still got the "ouch it's purple" look to it. And this is currently living in the dev tree, so who knows if the code will make it into the "Real" 4.0 fork. Time will tell.
