Firstly, Netbeans 8 is great!

I've just completed the survey & my top 3 requests were all the same, the font for the interface in Netbeans on Ubuntu 14.04 is absolutely horrendous... I'd take a screen capture and include it, but I wouldn't want to scare potential Netbeans users away. ;-)

Previously I once tried a plug-in that was supposed to help, but it did more harm than good. I had it all set up nicely on my old machine, but not sure if I can just copy settings over or if it would break things? If anyone has suggestions, I'd really appreciate it! :-)

The best would of course just be to make it look good by default, none of my other applications on Ubuntu 14.04 has this problem.
