  1. Is the comment on Ocean a matter of taste? Can you be more specific?

    The snapshot is taken without any specific l&f setting on Windows XP, but granted, you can’t really get a good feeling of the look-n-feel.
    You should get Mustang and try SwingSet for yourself.

  2. Well, I’m saying that the new look is much nicer than in Tiger. And I figure that is because jconsole now uses XP instead of Ocean L&F. And I’m saying if you think that XP looks better, too, than I suggest you make it the default for all Swing Apps.
