Hardware: 7600 GS (overclocked)
Driver: 275.09.04 (beta)
OS: Fedora 15
Windowing System: KDE 4.6.3
I tested NetBeans 6.9.1 with the default metal theme, Nimbus theme, and GTK theme by running:
/opt/netbeans-6.9.1/bin/netbeans --laf <look-and-feel-abbreviation> \
I've not tried Gnome 3 or WindowMaker yet, but I don't expect any differences.
