Look and Feel

Has anyone ever gotten the look and feel for Windows to work for Linux? (Using JDK1.1 Swing 1.1 or Swing 1.0) I have not. Even the SwingSet demo app doesn't work. I wonder if it works with JDK1.2.

The windows LnF is forbidden on Non-Windows systems due to licensing issues. This is why it does not work.

"CORE Java Foundation Classes" by Kim Topley published by Prentice Hall. Chapt. 13, pg 1037.
"Note that, primarily for licensing reasons, there are restrictions that prevent some look-and-feel implementations being used outside of their native platforms. This means that, for example, the Windows look-and-feel cannot be used on the Solaris or Macintosh platforms."
I have also seen references to this on the Java Developer Connection. (http://developer.java.sun.com) Register to this area for free.
