Mac OSX Snow Leopard and Java 6 Experience

After upgrading to the latest Mac OS, things are definitely running well -- the speed is noticeable.  IntelliJ and NetBeans are working just fine for me and the latest ConcourseSuite CRM alpha and ConcourseConnect are both running fine too.  The default Java is now Java 6.

Perhaps the best "new" feature is that Spaces finally works with IntelliJ and NetBeans!  Previously, when either was activated, Spaces would not switch unless there was a second window.

Everyone having a good experience?

One more note... it wasn't until I used the MacBookPro's dedicated graphics chip that the Java UI was acceptable. Using the integrated graphics chip was actually slower than Leopard. The slowdown was noticeable when using application menus and widgets.
