      Description

      I've extracted a bunch of general purpose utility methods from NetBeans - specifically from
      org.openide.util.Utilities, all of which are generally useful - things like a canonical way to determine what
      OS you're running on and similar.

      I'm attaching a file with the more generally useful of them - hopefully from here they can one day wend
      their way into the JDK. All are stable, well tested and have been around for years in NetBeans.

          Tim, forgot the thanks, so here they are <g>

          Actually it was your older comment in Javalobby about tangled OS specifics
          (tsseee, even after a nearly a decade of swingx there are dark corners I never
          ventured into) with shortcuts which made me look into this contribution - and
          there they were, the cute methods I needed to fix another issue (#252-jdnc)

          We should solve these multiple classes with the same purpose by 1.0.
