Performance has been much improved in Tiger, and is even better in Mustang.
As far as aesthetics, I agree that the Metal look and feel is horrible. But it only takes a very small amount of work for a programmer to have Swing pick the theme for whatever platform it is running on. Admitedly, Swing L&Fs need a fair amount of work on X Windows yet. But on Windows and Mac, the native themes look pretty damn good. Swing on Mac is virtually indistingushable from a native OS X application thanks to Apple having done such an incredible job on the Aqua look and feel for Swing.
