I am curious: how does IntelliJ look like on Mac OS X? Does it use the Aqua look and feel? Would someone care to share a screenshot?

I upgraded OS X 10.2.6 to 10.3 with IDEA 3.0.5 installed. There were no issues, infact with my particular system, the fonts even look better now, but YMMV.

It can use the Aqua L&F if you want it. I don't like how the tabs are forced into a single row (like the Editor tabs in single row option) and many of the widgets don't quite size right (note the Run/Debug drop-down).

I was aggressive with the JPG compression so excuse the fuzzy screenie.

Forgot to add to my post above that the grey-striped window background makes the yellow Warning lines almost impossible to see. That was my biggest turn off to working in Aqua mode.

Perhaps if/when the brushed metal look is available I'll use the Mac native view.

The screenshot looks good. Maybe the IntelliJ folks could put a few screenshots of IntelliJ on Mac OS X directly on the http://www.intellij.com/ Web site for the Mac community. Zoltan, thanks for your comment!

Yup, worked fine for me too. I like the rounded windows and the new tab look (inherited from Panther in the mac l&f) but still a bit too white to notice the yellow bars.

Seems to act funny with the right-mouse button too but that may be because I didn't install the MS driver.
