NetBeans 5 Beta screenshots with JGoodies PlasticLookAndFeel

It looks like my screenshot of NetBeans 5 Beta with JGoodies PlasticLookAndFeel was added to the NetBeans page. I'm so proud. :)

In all seriousness, I initially had some reservations about the UI for NetBeans on OS X. I'm not a big fan of the Aqua L&F, not in Java apps, and not even in the OS itself. The next problem was that NetBeans on OS X seemed to take up too much screen real estate. I work on a 12" Powerbook at 1024x768 so I need all the screen real estate I can get. I fixed all these problems by installing ShapeShifter on OS X with the Gershwix theme, and then using the JGoodies Looks library to provide NetBeans with the PlasticLookAndFeel. I also used the 'small icons' option for the toolbar (second mouse click on toolbar).

The virtual desktop manager you see in the upper right corner is WSmanager

Congratulations.
I tried to submit a few screenshots but none was accepted :( Maybe because there were about Mobility Pack and there are 4 (from 9) screenshots about MP.
