Improve eclipse juno look and feel

12 Feb

I use Eclipse since years. Some of you may say that I’m a masochist. Well, people have different preferences. 🙂 I prefer Eclipse over other editors.

What’s the pain?

Eclipse had same look and feel since years. I used to have the same appearance under Windows/Linux/OSX. Everything was the same except fonts.

However nobody told how to get older look and feel in place.

What’s the solution?

It’s really simple. Go to Preferences > General > Apperance and change Theme to classic.
Here hows Mac theme looks like:

Thanks to this small change I may finally upgrade my environment to Juno. I just realised that my eclipse installation is almost 2 years old!
