    This looks like a Windows app of the late 1990's. Why can't 3rd parties enter the Leopard Age?

    That is OK

    3rd parties will develop applications that look like any Mac version you want when Apple will create the best look&feel for their Java platform. The current look&feel is the one distributed by Apple. Don't you think Apple is the best suited for this job?

    Anyway we are open to suggestions. Just tell us what you like. Lucian
