Changing NetBeans UI Look/Feel

Is it possible to somehow change the look/feel of NetBeans? I know it uses Swing and that usually apps using Swing for its UI can usually have their UI scheme changed.

The default appearence for OSX is vomitastic and would even settle for just some sort of barebones default look. The whole look is just too distracting and unnecessary.

Looks like this might be what I was looking for:

To change the default look and feel of netbeans 7.2.1 go to the home directory\Program file \netbeans 7.2.1\etc;

Now open to the netbeans.confg file and find out the following text.

netbeans_default_options="-J-client -J-Xss2m -J-Xms32m -J-XX:PermSize=32m -J-Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar=true -J-Dapple.awt.graphics.UseQuartz=true -J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -J-Dsun.zip.disableMemoryMapping=true"

Now add the following text;

-- laf com.sun.java.swing.plaf.nimbus.NimbusLookAndFeel;

Now it will be looked like;

netbeans_default_options="-J-client -J-Xss2m -J-Xms32m -J-XX:PermSize=32m -J-Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar=true -J-Dapple.awt.graphics.UseQuartz=true -J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -J-Dsun.zip.disableMemoryMapping=true --laf com.sun.java.swing.plaf.nimbus.NimbusLookAndFeel"

//Now you can see the new look and feel of netbeans (NimbusLookAndFeel)
