It's nice to keep the look and feel the same as the OS you're running on.

That said, my favorite is the Metal look and feel.

I like the Substance l&f. It's released under a BSD license. You can find it here:

I like the GTX LF. It is very clean looking.

Chris thanks for the link to the laf. It looks pretty slick.
Although I did notice a problem (well I've noticed this same problem in the jgoodies plastic laf, so maybe its an underlying java problem).

Any time in a JTable where highlighting a selected row changes the color of the text, I get some really weird behaviors. If the selection mode/model only allows for one row to be selected, and you select one row and then another row that is above that one all the rows in between have their text color changed even though the last row selected is the only one highlighted. Anyone else notice this?

JTable does some snazzy stuff with it's TableRendererS, using one as a rubber stamp and changing the value. Snazzy. Problem is this seems to be the root cause of a lot of odd behavior when the JTable doesn't properly detect that something changed or is supposed to be different. This could just be my implementing JTable's wrong in general, but I tend to feel that there's just something inherently flawed in their design.

Anyone care to tell me I'm wrong and what the problem is?

I think it is just part of Java.
