Several JDK Samples are NetBeans Projects

Did you know that the JDK comes with a rather massive amount of demos and samples... and that several of those are NetBeans projects? Until today, I didn't know that. I'm pretty sure that most people I know don't know that either, because otherwise we'd have published some kind of document or something similar about it, somewhere.

Here's the evidence. Below, everything with an orange icon is a NetBeans project. So, you can open the entire directory of demos and the entire directory of samples in NetBeans IDE. Plus, you can open some of the samples themselves, which you can then run right away from the IDE.

Pretty cool, I reckon.
