For anyone still looking for an alternative to the Metal look and Feel, you can use "com.sun.java.swing.plaf.nimbus.NimbusLookAndFeel". It looks better than Metal, but still dated... Sun was never the greatest for UI...

It should work with the Oracle JVM, but I'm guessing not the others. Personally, I just changed my font as described in some of the other posts.
