Mac OS X and IDEA L&F

Any other OSX users prefer the IDEA L&F?

Anyone else still seeing the app menu get greyed out? Worked fine with the Aqua L&F, but I miss multiple rows of tabs (among other things) so I went back to the IDEA L&F and now the app menu still goes grey..

No, I don't use IDEA L&F, tried it, but got annoyed by the grayishness of
the whole thing. Aqua works great, main menu bar works fine with some
quirks which Apple is fixing in next 1.4 release.

Forget multiple tabs command + e is your best friend.

that's the opposite of how I feel about the Aqua L&F.. its too white! with both the editor pane background and the sidebar backgrounds being white by default :)

While I normally like Java apps that appear as native as possible, I admit to using the IDEA L&F over Aqua. One reason is that I use IDEA on Windows, Solaris, and OS X so I like to have a consistant UI between each platform. Another reason is that the widget layout etc... in the IDEA L&F just seems more polished.
