It saddens me to say this, but Substance module for NetBeans, which allows you to play with all the available themes, watermarks, skins, and even set an arbitrary image as the IDE watermark (a feature that was used extensively in the NetBeans look and feel contest about a year ago) will not be supported in NetBeans 6.0.
