Why SUN cannot create a decent L&F for Java ?

Just got a pointer to Nimbus, some relatively new L&F for Java.

All I can say is that it sucks just as any other L&F I have seen in Java since it appeared. The question is, in this case, why are they not able to produce a decent L&F for Java ? I mean they are not totally brain damaged and besides, decent L&Fs for Java, even great ones (see JGoodies) exist already ? Is there some conspiracy to make Java UIs look like hell ?
