Oh, well, on my Mac it has the Aqua look, so it looks rather pretty, 
but I agree that it could be much prettier. Actually, before I helped 
Daniele tweak the UI just a little, it looked *really* ugly ;-).

If I remember correctly, selecting the default platform L&F is quite 
simple and this would give Windows users a more familiar UI, so I'm +1 
on that. As for Linux/Unix people, they are accustomed to ugly, 
inconsistent GUIs so they shouldn't care much ;-) Besides I think GTK 
is the default platform L&F on Linux starting with JDK 1.5. Personally, 
I prefer Metal, but that's just me.
