For the sake of being nitpicky, I have to say that's a VERY bad thing to 
do. Unless you have a sadistic desire to baffle your users, you should 
try to keep the L&F of your applications consistent with either 
conventions for the target platform, or perhaps more importantly with 
other similar applications on the same platform. Besides, L&Fs aren't 
really a thing that UI toolkits define, but rather how you design an 
application. Besided, overriding controls to behave contrary to the 
system defaults in all the details involved (like having selection copy 
to the clipboard, or a single click launch an activation event instead 
of a double click) is a lot of more or less pointless work.
