I am using the default swing look and feel of metal. But I am running into a problem with a difference in font size between windows and linux. So I still want to use metal but I want to adjust the font size. Is there an easy way to do this?

is the font difference very noticeable?
could it be the default bold works on windows, not on linux?

to turn it off
UIManager.put("swing.boldMetal", Boolean.FALSE);

if still a difference, iterate the UIManager looking for fonts, and setting your own font (as a FontUIResource)
