Change the Netbeans Windows Layout

In Netbeans there currently (Version 6.1) is no built-in option to save a windows layout, you can only do a “Reset Windows”  (in the Window menu) to get back to the factory layout.
I’ve been looking for a solution to get a cough Visual Studio cough like layout (all navigation on the right of the code window) and found a great plugin called Perspective (click this link twice as for some reason on the first click it will give you the plugin home page) that lets you save a layout and switch easily between layouts (er, perpectives). You can’t download it using the Netbeans plugin installer as it’s not signed, so you’ll have to download and install from disk:
