.desktop file for netbeans
It would be nice if netbeans could bundle a .desktop file or template for one.
It would help maintain a consistent experience across linux distributions by having an icon in the desktop environment's menu.

Do you mean zip distribution?
NetBeans Installer currently creates .desktop file and adds the icon in the desktop environment's menu for Linux.

Yes I meant the zip distribution, thanks for letting me know.
