I just started playing around with ajavafx. I'm kind of excited, it looks like it will be kind of easy to create pleasant looking GUIs with not much code.
Anyway, i have to ask which kind of tools you guys are using? I tried Netbeans 6 with JavaFX plugin but I'm on Mac leopard and it doesn't seem to work too well with the GUI stuff. (it keeps putting labels on buttons and other weird stuff - doesn't look nice)

Are there any better editor then the JavaFxPad out there?

I'm having issues on Leopard as well. Seems the UI is not repainting. Switching from one view to another just paints over the original view. Resizing the window causes a repaint and the window displays properly. Not sure if this a Netbean issue or Java on Leopard issue?

Yep, it kind of stink.
I ordered a cheap laptop running ubuntu - perhaps that will play nicely with netbeans & javaFx

Hi,

Netbeans and Eclipse run JavaFX well on KUbuntu (7.10).

You can download the plugins for Eclipse or Netbeans. Check the openjfx main site.

Yep, I tried that. But as said, the apps looks weird when run within Netbeans on Leopard. I guess I'll stick with javafxpad while learning.
