The Nimbus Look and Feel

This is "Nimbus" - the new look and feel that comes with Java 6 Update 10. This is a cross platform l&f which means it should look the same on all platforms. Kernow currently uses the "platform default" look and feel so it should look like a native app on the platform it's run on, but it's hard to make sure it looks right - often what looks ok on Windows will have obscured buttons on Linux... something I should've fixed but never did.

Anyway, what do you think?

I value UI reliability over consistency with OS standards. You should not need to worry whether a text on a button will be completely visible on another OS, so go ahead!
