RCP and the Eclipse "look"

I’ve been chatting with colleagues lately about what RCP is and what is possible with RCP. One of the comments made was that “do all RCP applications have that Eclipse look?” The answer is no (although I feel like every application needs those swooshy CTabFolder‘s). Some people may not know this, but Eclipse has a presentations API. You can do crazy stuff like theme Eclipse to look like Visual Studio.

What I want to do with this blog post is to start by posting a screenshot of an RCP application that doesn’t “look like Eclipse.” I encourage other PlanetEclipse’rs to follow suit by posting a favourite RCP application of theirs. My application is Lotus’ new Sametime client. Doesn’t look too shabby eh ;)?
